Strong connections aren’t only important for internet speeds - this is your chance to build, learn and grow!
This year, we’re bringing together a diverse group of mentors, speakers, sponsors and other industry professionals. Chat one-on-one, learn about current tech trends and opportunities, and show off your skills! Looking for some inspiration? Encountering a roadblock? Does python feel like it’s constricting you? Not to worry, there will always be a helping hand at the ready.
A hackathon is a sprint-like event where people from a variety of backgrounds come together to collaborate on software and hardware projects.
Any college or university student of any skill level! All you need is a passion for tech/data/design and a willingness to learn! We welcome applicants from all fields of study.
QHacks will be taking place at Queen's University in the city of Kingston, Ontario. The event will be held in Mitchell Hall. Don’t worry about getting lost! We will have maps for you and volunteers all over campus to guide the way.
Absolutely nothing! Not one penny. (Remember those?)
Not to worry! We'll have a team-formation session prior to the hackathon for you to find people you’d like to work with. There will be plenty of other people in the same situation, and we’ll have you up and running in no time!
No. All projects must be started from scratch at the event.
Yes! Hackers are expected to adhere to the Major League Hacking Code of Conduct.
Encountering a 307 status? We'll be sending buses to Kingston from Ottawa and Toronto. If you can make it to either of those cities, we'll reimburse for your cost to get there (GO Buses preferred).
Applications are out now! Click the button at the top of the page to apply. You don't need to be an expert hacker or to have been to a hackathon before - we just want to see what makes you creative and unique!
