about us

sunhacks is a student-run hackathon at Arizona State University committed to growing the local tech community, providing students with brand new opportunities and connections, and contributing to a world-wide community: the hacker community. In April 2018, we hosted our first sunhacks to introduce Phoenix to the hacker community. Our vision this year is to bring programmers of all backgrounds and skill levels together for a 36-hour coding and building session to bring their project ideas to life at our second sunhacks.



Are you interested in participating in sunhacks? Registration opens on September 20th! You must be a current student (at any school) and at least 18 years of age.



Are you interested in volunteering at sunhacks? We wouldn't be able to put on a hackathon without volunteers who help with all sorts of things such as checkin, hardware labs, and snack tables.



Are you interested in mentoring at sunhacks? Mentors help students learn and grow their talents by answering questions, providing feedback, and giving general guidance.
