Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Hackathon?

Hackathons are full of unique experiences. Over the course of the weekend, come watch you and your team's project come to life, network with sponsors in a much more causal environment than a career fair, come meet new friends and learn about new technology skills highly sought after.

Who can attend the event?

All college, university, or high school students 18 years or older are welcome to attend.

Code of Conduct?

As a Major League Hacking member event, we require all attendees (hackers, volunteers, mentors, sponsors, etc) to follow Major League Hacking’s Code of Conduct.

I don't have a team yet. Can I still partcipate?

Of course! Teams are by no means a prerequiste for coming to Hack Arizona. We'll host several team formation sessions before the hacking starts so that you can get to know your fellow attendees.

Can I get travel reimbursement?

We unfortunately do not yet have the funds to reimburse our attendees for their travel. We sincerely apologize, but hope you understand. In the future when we're bigger, we hope to be able to help you out, so stay tuned!

Is Hack Arizona a free event?

Hack Arizona is a free event, including wifi, food, drinks, prizes and some awesome swag!

What if I don't have a team?

Don't have a team? That's okay, after our opening ceremony, stick around to find some team members who want to help you with your project—or maybe you want to help them with theirs! We have activities planned to help you find your dream team.

What about hardware hacks?

MLH will be generously renting out cutting edge technology to the hackers. From Oculus Rifts to Arduinos, the sky is the limit. If you have hardware or tools, you are more than welcome to bring them as well.

What do I need to bring?

You'll need to bring your student ID, laptop, phone, chargers, toiletries, and any sleeping items you might want. We will have a sleeping area designated and showers will be provided!

I'm not a student. How do I get involved?

To get the full hackathon experience we highly recommend you stay, but we understand if you need to leave (or if you want to sleep in a real bed for the night).
