HackBU exists to foster a community of individuals who solve problems through the innovative use of technology. We host weekly web development workshops, organize trips to hackathons, and will host our own 24-hour hackathon.
What are these workshops?
We're hosting weekly workshops every Thursday night on campus to teach web development. Can't make it? We're filming the "lectures" and posting the videos online.
What's a hackathon?
An event where "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. Most hackathons last between 24-48 hours and are full of caffeine, food, prizes, and little sleep.
Is experience necessary?
Not at all! Over 2/3 of HackBU members have no programming experience.
