For the 8th consecutive year, Canada’s first student-run hackathon, UofTHacks, will bring together 500 innovators, technology enthusiasts, designers, and entrepreneurs in a thrilling competition where they will embark on a journey to build unique and impactful projects.
An event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. We look past this traditional definition of a hackathon and take it to new heights. UofTHacks is the University of Toronto's annual hackathon. At UofTHacks, we bring people together to make new friends, learn new things, and bring new ideas to life.
It will be happening online, from February 19th to the 21st on Hopin and Discord.
No worries! Although hackathons are often a team experience, we welcome solo hackers as well! If you’d like to find a team before the event, we will be hosting a team formation opportunity shortly before the start of the hackathon!
Not at all — UofTHacks is a perfect opportunity to learn something new! Throughout the event we’ll have tons of workshops to help you get set up. We’ll also have mentors floating around to help out whenever you need it!
Yes, you are more than welcome to attend!
Anything! As we get closer to the date, we’ll provide you with access codes and APIs that'll be available to you at the hackathon. You’re also welcome to use your own tools.
Each team can have up to 4 hackers!
The deadline to apply for UofTHacks is January 31st, 2021.
