HackBU is an organization at Binghamton University that fosters a community of students who work together on projects that they are passionate about, outside the classroom. We exist to mentor students, help them learn the technologies that interest them most, and get them excited about programming and problem-solving.
Hackathons are events where a bunch of "hackers" come together in teams with the intention of creating the best type of program (i.e. web app, iPhone app, etc) or hardware within a certain period of time.
The event is open to all Binghamton University students 18 and older. You don't need to be a Computer Science major or engineer to participate!
No problem! We're looking to bring students from other nearby universities. When you register, select "Non-Binghamton Student" and bring your travel receipts so we can reimburse your expenses.
Don't worry, beginners are welcome. Come to HackBU's weekly workshops to learn how to code.
Bring your computer, hardware, and chargers. We'll provide the rest.
No! We recommend registering with friends but there will be opportunities to brainstorm and meet other participants.
Yes. We'll be providing meals and snacks so don't worry!
