sunhacks strives to build a community around technology and contribute to the explosively growing community that consists of hackers from all around the world. We especially focus on allowing students unfamiliar with the community to have a chance to experience hacker culture but also be guided into hackathons with the intent to spark their curiosity and fuel their wildest project ideas.
We welcome all students (or students that have graduated within the calendar year) that will be 18+ by November 8th!
