When you register you'll be asked for several forms. If you want to be able to submit your registration quickly, fill them out in advance (Emergency Care Form & Field Trip Form, links below).
When you register we’ll give you the option to upload a resumé, which would be given to certain sponsors looking to recruit hackers. You will also have a chance to submit your resumé after you register if you are not ready to upload it now.
Please note that registering alone does not guarantee you will receive a ticket. Admission decisions will be made based on a variety of factors including the date/time you register, so make sure to sign up quickly! Admission decisions will be sent out on March 11th.
HackTJ is a student-run hackathon at TJHSST, where you will have 24 hours to learn how to code and/or work with your friends to make your idea come to life.
HackTJ will start on Saturday, April 6 and run until Sunday, April 7. If you need to arrive late or leave early, please let us know ahead of time.
HackTJ is open to any and all current high school students. If you're not a high school student but would like to attend, consider coming as a mentor or volunteer.
Nope! Thanks to our sponsors, HackTJ is completely free!
Registration will be open starting on February 18th through the beginning of March.
Yes, good question! We have adopted the MLH code of conduct, which all attendees will be required to adhere to.
In the context of a hackathon, "hacking" is to build a real application over the length of the event. It's important to not confuse this with illegal hacking, which is gaining unauthorized access to a computer.
If you already have a team of 2-4 people you want to work with, that's awesome! If not don't worry because we'll have an opportunity for people to join a team if they need one.
Come to HackTJ! Coding is fun, creative, and an important skill, and HackTJ is the perfect way to learn. We'll have workshops and mentors to help guide you.
You'll need to bring your laptop, phone, chargers, a sleeping bag/pillow, toiletries, and extra clothing. We suggest you bring a set of nice clothes for demos; you'll want to make the best impression.
Yes. Lots and lots of food.
We'll be providing meals for most everyone at HackTJ, but if you have special concerns please let us know.
