Let's go on an adventure! Build, craft, and code to your heart's content!

HackNC 2018 will take place on October 6th and 7th in Murray and Venable Halls at UNC-Chapel Hill!

HackNC is a weekend for students of all skill levels to broaden their talents. Your challenge is to make an awesome project in just 24 hours. You will have access to hands-on workshops and demos from our sponsors, as well as exciting talks about the awesome things happening right now with computer science and technology - not to mention all of the free food, shirts, stickers, and swag!

HackNC begins with just a weekend, but we hope you will whet skills, make friends, and foster ideas here that flourish. Ready to apply? You'll need a laptop and your fanciest thinking cap - everything else is on us. Get started now.
