About

UofTHacks is the University of Toronto's annual hackathon.
/ˈhakəθɒn/: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. At UofTHacks, we bring people together to make new friends, learn new things, and bring new ideas to life.

Why Attend?

Join 500 brilliant developers, inspiring designers, and innovative creators for 36 hours of hacking. We’ll give you access to some of the best hardware and APIs on the market, as well as access to mentors with years of experience - everything you need to build something you never thought was possible. You don’t have to be a pro to attend. If this will be your first hackathon, we can’t wait to expose you to the world of creation, all it takes is a willingness to try something new. Be sure to also take a look at the MLH guidlines.
