Join us for a 2-day, 200 person conference for student hackathon organizers and friends. Learn more.
Every team has fought battles, and every organizer has stories to tell and experience to share. Hackcon is two days of short talks, discussions, and other sub-events led by attendees.
Each year, more than 100 student hackathons take place in the US, UK, Canada, & Mexico alone. Come meet the amazing organizers behind the movement.
Hackcon's unique schedule of workshops and talks gives you the oportunity to share some of your own tips and tricks with the community while learning from some of the best.
Every hackathon starts with a vision. Hear first hand about how some of the most prolific hackathons got their start and bring it back to your school.
We're still at day zero of the student hackathon movement. Help plan out the future of hackathons and set the direction for our 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 excpetions for non-organizers.
Tickets cost $100.00 each. The ticket includes two nights of housing in NYC, five meals, snacks, drinks, a fun group activity, and the conference. If you really can't afford it, scholarships are availble.
Attendees are encouaged to arrive on Friday, January 30th. 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, February 1st.
Housing in NYC 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.
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.
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.
