HackYSU is a hackathon, an event where students of all majors and experience levels come together to create something - normally a creative technology project like an app or website - awesome in a weekend. Students will have 36 hours to create anything they want – software, hardware, a business plan, art, a design, anything – in the pursuit of knowledge, glory, and prizes. Hacks will be exhibited science fair style in a showcase at the end of the weekend. HackYSU is an educational experience. No matter what your experience, you are welcome here. Everyone is invited to expand their skill set and make something awesome. We'll have mentors around helping students with their hacks, hardware like Oculus Rifts to borrow and hack on (courtesy of Major League Hacking), and a team building session where you can meet some awesome people who'll either help get you on your feet or compliment your abilities.
The event will take place from February 22nd - 24th and will be held in the DeBartolo Stadium Club Room at Youngstown State University's main campus. Preregistration is required to attend the event. There will be prizes and free food offered to those who attend.
