Of course! Please fill out an application on our Google Form. We’ll get back to you promptly with more details.
Not in our context! In hackathons, “hacking” means building an application throughout the event. It’s not the same as gaining unauthorized tech access, which is illegal.
We’ll have spaces specifically designed for sleeping. We recommend bringing blanket or a sleeping bag!
Unfortunately, due to University policy and insurance limitations, participants under the age of 18 are not allowed to apply for the event. We hope to see you at a future event!
Due to limited funds this year, travel for HackSC X will not be reimbursed.
Yes. Breakfast, lunch and dinner! Feel free to bring snacks too.
Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions that we haven’t mentioned here! We’d love to hear from you.
