Beginner Friendly.

  • Interested in attending but worried that you might not have what it takes? Fear not! We’ve designed our hackathon to be beginner friendly from the get-go, complete with intro-level workshops, a network of mentors, and as much organizer support as you can handle! No coding experience necessary!

Hybrid Hackathon?

  • Yep, you read that right. Hybrid. Hackathon. Are you an ASU student and want to attend in person to connect with your team face to face? Come on in! Prefer to stay at home and hack in PJ’s and socks? Totally cool too (that sounds awesome!). Hybrid hackathons are a first for us here at sunhacks and we’d love for you to be a part of it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • what is a hackathon?
    • We consider a hackathon to be a 24-36 hour prototyping marathon. sunhacks is a 36 hour hackathon this year! Work on software or hardware solutions to real world problems, innovative projects, or anything you can think of (even if it’s a silly idea)!
  • who can hack?
    • Any student over the age of 18 can participate! Arizona State University students can attend in-person, however, we are limiting in-person participants at our venue and streaming studio, apply early to snag a spot. If you've recently graduated you can still participate if you're within one year of your graduation.
  • i've never programmed before, is it okay?
    • Yes! Programmers are not the only people who can participate at a hackathon. We have people from all sorts of backgrounds and levels of experience attend sunhacks. If you are new to programming, we also have mentors and workshops that can teach you how to code! All you need to do is attend, and we’ll support you the rest of the way!
  • how much does it cost to participate?
    • sunhacks costs zip, zilch and nada to participate! We will never charge you any sort of participation fee.
  • what are the rules?
    • Follow the MLH code of conduct! If you are participating with a team, a maximum of 4 people are allowed. Regardless of whether you are in a team or on your own, only one project can be submitted for the weekend.
  • can I be a mentor/judge/speaker?
    • Our participation rules apply (see: “who can hack”), but we are open to making exceptions where applicable. All are eligible to be a mentor or speaker regardless of prior experience, however, a hacker cannot be a judge. As we have limited space for speakers and judges, those will be selected based on talk or experience respectively and you will receive confirmation from us when it comes time.
  • can I request additional accommodations?
    • Absolutely. We will be providing closed captioning, expect our speakers to provide additional accessible resources, and have multiple methods of interacting with our event through Discord. However, we can always do better. We encourage you to inform us through our registration, volunteer form, or via email as soon as possible so we can incorporate your needs and continue shaping the environment toward a more inclusive future for all. If you have any questions reach out to us at team@sunhacks.io
