What can you build in 24 hours?

Design

If you're a designer, you are able to bring your knowledge of visual principles and aesthetics to HackBU. Collaborating with developers will allow all parties to flourish, building beautiful and functional hacks.

Code

Programmers galore! Without programmers we wouldn't be much of a hackathon. Whether your interest lie in mobile, web, machine learning, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, or any of the other possible direction, we want you at HackBU. You do not need experience in any of these, all that matters is you have the drive.

Create

Most important, be creative. Do you have some outlandish idea that you don't think you could ever make? Create it at HackBU! We want nothing more than to help you unleash the creativity inside you, we'll take care of the rest.

HackBU is a 350-student hackathon at Binghamton University that aims to foster students' passion and interest for challenging themselves with interesting problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is HackBU?

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.

What happens at a hackathon?

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.

Who can attend?

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!

What if I'm not from Binghamton?

No problem! We're looking to bring students from other universities. When you register, select "Non-Binghamton Student" and bring your travel receipts so we can reimburse your expenses (Cap will be evaluated soon).

What if I'm a newbie?

Don't worry, beginners are welcome. Come to HackBU's weekly workshops to learn how to code.

What should I bring?

Bring your computer, hardware, chargers toiletries, a sleeping bag, and anything you might need for an overnight stay.

Do I need a team or idea to sign up?

No! We recommend registering with friends but there will be opportunities to brainstorm and meet other participants.

Will there be food?

Yes. We'll be providing meals and snacks so don't worry!
