Virtual Hackathon

What's a Hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where students work on projects in teams to create an application, website or robot. Anything can be built. There are usually categories or "tracks" in a hackathon that can help you scope your project to a problem that needs to be solved.

You don't have to know how to code in order to participate in a hackathon. There is always a spot for you on a team!

What is a "hackathon"?

A hackathon is an event where students work on projects in teams to create an application, website or robot. Anything can be built. There are usually categories or "tracks" in a hackathon that can help you scope your project to a problem that needs to be solved.

When? Where? How?

PlutoHacks will be on October 22-24th. Our hackathon will be 100% virtual! You can participate from the comfort of your own home, no matter where it is! We will use Discord and Zoom. Check in will start in our Discord server at 12 PM EST. Check out our schedule for more information.

How do teams work?

You can work on a project on your own, or you can work with a team. Teams can be formed prior to the day of the hackathon with other participants, or at the team formation event before official hacking begins. We also provide a team-formation channel in our Discord Sever so hackers can get to know more about each other before the big day. Team size must not exceed four members, per MLH rules.

How much experience do I need?

You don't need any experience to participate in our hackathon. We welcome students of all skill levels and academic backgrounds. We will have workshops during the hackathon as well as mentors there to provide help and guidance with your project.

How do I get swag?

If you happen to be in the South Florida area, you are more than welcome to pass by our campus to pick up your bag of goodies (Broward College Central Campus -3501 S.W. Davie Road Davie, FL 33314)! Not close to us? No problem! We can mail it to you.

How do I use Discord?

Since Discord is where we hold all communication, you should familiarize yourself with the platform. Visit this link to get a basic understanding of how Discord works!

Schedule 

All activities are EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) UTC−04:00

Other than hacking, there are plenty of other things you can do here at PlutoHacks! We will be having a series of workshops as well as super fun games and events! Check it out!
