A hackathon is where you turn your crazy ideas into real stuff. Hundreds of hackers from across California will gather and build something they're passionate about. You take care of building. We'll take care of you.
Major League Hacking (MLH) is the official student hackathon league. SF Hacks is an official MLH Member Event, so that means we follow the MLH Code Of Conduct.
SF Hacks is free for all admitted participants. We’ll have WiFi, food, workshops, and awesome swag during the entire 24 hours you’ll be with us.
The hacker ethos is all about teamwork. If you don’t have a teammate, we’ll hold a team-formation workshop where you can meet your new best friend.
SF Hacks is open to all majors. Whether you’re a budding ethnic studies, cinema, or computer science major, we want you to be here.
Be prepared to learn, brainstorm, and build amazing software/hardware. Throughout the hackathon, we’ll be holding workshops where students can learn how to use various tools in developing websites and apps.
You can build anything you want, whether it’s a website, app, hardware, or tool.
Please feel free to send us a message over on Facebook, Twitter, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SF Hacks will take place at the Student Life Events Center (also known as the Annex 1) on the west side of San Francisco State University’s campus.
The address is: 1 North State Drive, San Francisco CA, 94132
If you live in the Bay Area, you can take Bay Are Rapid Transportation (BART) to Daly City and then take the SF Muni 28 bus to SFSU’s campus.
For non-local students, we'll provide specific directions to SF Hacks upon acceptance.
