Hacks Hacks

Imagine. Innovate. Inspire

Come Hack with us!

WWPHacks is a digital hackathon - a collaborative programming competition where teams of up to four work against the clock to build innovative technological solutions to real world problems. Participants will have 24 hours to communicate and work on their project with their team, with the opportunity to participate in numerous workshops and mini-events along the way. Once projects are finished, contestants will submit them for judging. A team of judges will analyze projects based on metrics such as neatness, creativity, and implementation. Interesting prizes will be awarded to winners. At the end of the day, participants be leaving the hackathon with technical experience, new friends, and the feeling of fulfillment.
