If you're a Duke student and you want to help out day of, please fill out this form! If you aren't, please put your email in the netID section. You'll get a free hack kitty t-shirt. :D
Contact us at [email protected].
You can participate as long as you're a student (undergraduate or graduate)! If you're a new grad, we'd love to have you too.
If you want to be a mentor, see here!
Anyone! Get to know your fellow programmers better from your own and other schools!
The only request that we have is that you make a new friend by talking to each other, our mentors and our experts!
We welcome all software and hardware hacks that align to our tracks for impact. We will also have lab space for hardware hackers.
Bring your own ethernet cables (or you can just WiFi) and bring any Nerf gun arsenal you have!
Anyone from across the nation is welcome to come! We will be providing buses for certain universities.
For those who are not coming by a bus that we provide, a maximum of $200 will be reimbursed. We will be sending out the forms necessary for this reimbursement to expedite the process, so if you're coming, check your email!
The tracks of impact are:
We ask all the hackers to try and create hacks that address the following tracks above. If you need ideas or inspiration, check HackKitty's blog!
Of course! We have a specific room and track for novice programmers and first-time hackers and software engineers from all kinds of companies to give you one-on-one mentorship. (:
Also, if you go to Duke, UNC or NCState, look out for our education week. We'll be holding crash courses on web dev, iOS and Android dev as well as hardware!
Yes, but there's a little twist! The grand prizes are donations under your name to charities and causes! There will be grand prize winners for each track, novice track and many other company sponsored API prizes as well. Check the prizes page for more info!
