Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?
At it's simplest, a hackathon is an event where programmers meet to collaborate on programming projects. The word "hackathon" is a portmanteau of the words "hack" and "marathon". Please note that Hack K-State hacking will be of the awesome variety, not the evil variety. Students interested in learning how to create and develop with code are welcome! Those interested in subverting security systems need not apply.
Who's eligible to compete?
Current students from any institution, high school through grad school, and those who have graduated in the past 12 months. (You don't have to be a K-State student.)
Can I compete with a team?
Yes. Teams can have up to 4 people, but every participant must sign up individually. If you are showing up solo but want to be matched up with a team, let us know at check-in, and we'll help you out.
How much does it cost?
Free for participants, our event is supported by companies who want to hire you. :)
But I don't know how to make anything.
Hackathons are a great way to learn! We'll have mentors available to help point you in the right direction. You've got nothing to lose, so come and hack with us.
What about sleep?
While we will have plenty of coffee, those of us who choose to sleep can do so in our designated quiet area.
Will there be prizes?
Yes.
Will I need to bring my own laptop?
Yes, preferably; however, we will have CIS department computer lab machines available and a limited number of laptops to check out. You'll have the best luck bringing your own device, configured just the way you like.
How do I sign up?
The signup form is in the footer of this page. Check out our sponsors on your way there. They're awesome.
