Come together and learn the ins and outs of planning a hackathon while also collaborating with some of the smartest minds in the hacker community!
Most of the people who attend Hackcon are current or aspiring student hackathon organizers. If that sounds like you, we'd love to have you attend. We do make occasional exceptions for non-organizers.
Housing in San Francisco is included in the price of your ticket. Hackcon is about building community, so you'll be staying with other student hackathon organizers like yourself. Needless to say, the accomodations will be nice and in a safe location.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive on Friday, July 17th. The conference won't start until the next day at 9am, but we'll have an ice breaker on Friday and housing is provided. The conference will end at 4pm on Sunday, July 19th.
Hackcon takes place over the course of two days. Each day starts with two opening keynotes in the morning and then transitions to lightning talks, workshops, & community lead discussions in the afternoon.
You are responsible for your own transportation to San Francisco. Getting here is pretty easy, you can fly into San Francisco International Airport. There are also some pretty cheap buses and trains around.
Tickets cost $100.00 each. The ticket includes two nights of housing in San Francisco, five meals, snacks, drinks, a fun group activity, and the conference. If you really can't afford it, scholarships are available.
Absolutely. Minors can attend if their parents will sign a liability waiver. Unfortunately, minors cannot stay overnight in the provided housing and will need to find their own accomodations.
Hackcon is organized by a group of Hackathon fanatics -- Alexey Komissarouk, Dan Schlosser, Ishaan Gulrajani, Nick Meyer, and the Major League Hacking Team.
For housing we've booked the Parc 55 hotel in Union Square. Its central downtown location makes navigating the city seamless. The conference itself will be hosted by our friends from GitHub at their HQ.
