What’s HackNJIT?

HackNJIT is a 24-hour hackathon at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, during which college students will forgo sleep to build some awesome projects.

Who can participate?

Any undergraduate or graduate student at any college, or any recent (within 6 months) graduate from a college, is allowed to participate. High school students who are 16 years old or older are also allowed to participate. While at HackNJIT, you will be expected to abide by the MLH Code of Conduct.

Does it cost me money to participate?

Nope! There’s no registration fee for HackNJIT. However, you will need to cover any travel costs to get to NJIT.

Where can I find the MLH Code of Conduct?

check it out here!

What SHOULD I bring?

Bring whatever you need to hack. This includes your laptop, charger for your devices, and any other hardware you might need. Please also bring some form of identification. Note that, due to circumstances beyond our control, we cannot allow desktops at this hackathon.

What SHOULDN’T I bring?

Don’t bring any weapons, firearms, alcohol, illegal drugs, etc. If it’s not allowed on a flight, it’s not allowed at HackNJIT.

Do I have to register as a team?

We don’t impose any restrictions on team formation during registration. Feel fee to register by yourself, or find some friends and register together. However, we will limit a team’s size to 4 participants.

Will there be food?

We’ll be providing meals throughout the hackathon, as well as snacks and drinks. Note that, due to circumstances beyond our control, energy drinks are not allowed at this hackathon.

Can I use any of my old projects?

Please don’t! The whole fun of a hackathon is building something new in a really short time frame. That said, you are free to use any open source frameworks (such as Angular or Bootstrap), as well as any third-party API’s (such as Twitter’s API).

You guys haven’t answered my question.

If you still have questions, or want more information, feel free to email us at njitacm@gmail.com, or you can tweet us @HackNJIT.
