About this event


Excited for a weekend of networking with the coolest people and mentors, competing for incredible prizes, and coding solutions for the real world? UCSB's 4th annual hackathon is ready for you all... Mark your calendars for January 19th-21st! Students of all backgrounds and skill sets welcome :)

🦁 🐘 🐒 🐅 🦏 🐆 🐍 🦋 🐨

Get PUMPED AF because this means:

  • A 36 hour adrenaline rush from problem solving, coding, and collaborating
  • Hands-on experience using company tech and hardware not accessible elsewhere
  • Getting mentored by industry professionals from companies like Google and SpaceX
  • Developing your skill set from workshops
  • Starting off the new year with a mini beach getaway
  • FREE food, snacks, and drinks all weekend (just one less adult responsibility to worry about)
  • Did we mention you'll be coding in paradise?

Already imagining yourself there? Sign-up today and let's make this happen. Come explore the jungle of Isla Vista and celebrate the new year by letting SB Hacks be the first hackathon you attend in 2018! 🌊🌴

It's going to be LEGEN - wait for it... we hope you're not lactose intolerant because the next word we're going to say is - DAIRY! (But if you are, we totally have you covered on food + shoutout to all the HIMYM fans)

Register at now! We wouldn't want you to miss out on this opportunity to code by the beach, the experience will be #worthit

Our forms are specifically designed to take about a minute tops to fill out! Apps can be updated later so no need to worry about missing resumes or anything. It's that simple to #makewaves with us.
