What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where people can work together to innovate, create, and implement ambitious new projects in a collaborative environment. You begin by converting your ideas into reality over the span of 24-72 hours.

Where will this be hosted?

SigmaHacks 3 will be completely online! Wherever you are in the world, you can take part in the hackathon!

Who can participate?

We are all about inclusion! We don't have any restriction on age, university affiliation, or nationality.

Do I need a team? What if I don't have a team?

We recommend having a team of up to 4 people, but it is not necessary. If you don't already have a team when you register, we'll be hosting a virtual team-formation activity!

What if I don't know how to code?

Not a problem at all! We will have plenty of mentors and workshops to help you learn how to code and get started.

Are there prizes?

Yes, there will be prizes! Check back on our Devpost closer to the event to see the full list of prizes.
