Technight is the largest, and only high school, Brooklyn based hackathon in NYC.
TechHacks does not host events, TechHacks establishes communities. Surrounded by tech, both literally and figuratively, TechHacks is an organization that has single handedly revived student interest in programming in the Tech Triangle through its countless initiatives and dedicated members. Whether you're just getting into programming or have been programming for a while, you can join us at Technight and have a good time!
What is Technight? Technight is a 24 hour hackathon where you can win prizes, attend workshops, and have fun!
What is a hackathon? A hackathon is essentially a programmimg competition. From wikipedia, "an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming."
How much does it cost? Thanks to our incredible sponsors, Technight is free forever.
Should I bring anything with me? Yes! Please bring a school ID card, a laptop, and enthusiasm! You can also bring a sleeping bag if you'd like, but hacker tradition dictates lying on the cold hard ground. Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble...
Do I need a team? In order to be eligible to win prizes, you need to be in a group of 2 to 6. Other than that, don't fret if you can't find a team before the event! We'll have time during Technight for you to find teammates!
Do I need to know how to code? Nope! We're here to teach you how to code with our awesome workshops and mentors!
Am I eligible to attend? If you're in middle school or high school, you sure are!
Do you have a code of conduct? Yes! Please refer to this document.
I have more questions! Feel free to contact us on facebook or email us!
