sunhacks is a yearly hackathon (ideathon, coding marathon, prototyping marathon, etc) designed to support students in their innovative journeys. sunhacks is for students of all skill levels, and our job as organizers is to support you by providing the resources you need to achieve your development dreams. We provide you with workshops, mentors, community connections, and peers who are motivated to help each other succeed and reach their goals.
We are incredibly excited to bring sunhacks back to the Arizona State community!
For Fall 2024, sunhacks will be hosted as a fully in-person event at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex (SDFC) at Arizona State University - Tempe.
We are open to all skill levels, ages, background, fields, and more. As long as you're a student you're in!
This year, we will have sponsorship present in-person, as well as swag and live activities. Our workshops will be facilitated in person and live-streamed, in case you want to take a break from hacking while staying engaged.
We know that things can be pretty intimidating when there's a lot of unknowns, so check out the some what ifs below! If you still have questions email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although definitions and connotations may vary, at sunhacks, a hackathon means a 24-36 hour prototyping marathon. sunhacks is a 24-hour hackathon this Fall! Work on software or hardware solutions to real-world problems, innovative projects, or anything you can think of, no holds barred (within our code of conduct, of course).
Any student above the age of 18 is welcome to participate! Our event is fully in-person, so the event may be capacity-limited. Be sure to register early to secure your spot! If you've recently graduated, you can still participate within one year of your graduation date.
Max team size is four (4), minimum team size is one (1, meaning you!). Make sure each of your team members 1) register to attend and 2) when it comes time to submit the project all members are included in the submission. Only one project submission is allowed per participant.
Through the help of ASU and our sponsors, sunhacks will never charge any sort of participation fee for our events.
At sunhacks, everyone of any experience level or background is welcome to participate. sunhacks is your opportunity to explore the unknowns and learn a thing or two, or to simply make some new friends and build a silly project! Our experienced and diverse mentoring team is available throughout the whole event to answer any questions you may have, to ensure you have the tools to create whatever your project may be.
All are eligible to become a mentor or speaker regardless of their experience level, although a hacker cannot also judge projects. Since schedule capacity is limited, Speakers will be selected based on their experience level and topic matter. If interested, fill out our volunteer form here, and our team will reach out when the time comes!
