What is hackGSU?

hackGSU is the Hackathon hosted by the GSU Computer Science Department's ACM & IEEE student organizations. 100% free of charge, Lots of Food, $$ Prizes $$. This semester, hackGSU will be a 500+ participant event taking place from March 31 - April 2, 2017.

I have never been to a hackathon before, what should I do?

No problem! We will be providing mentors during the hackathon and we will be running workshops during the hackathon.

When and where is hackGSU happening?

hackGSU will take place on March 31 - April 2, at our beautiful downtown campus in Atlanta, GA.

But I don't have an idea, what should I do?

Not a problem! We will walk you through how to generate great ideas at the beginning of hackGSU.

How about teams?

Once the idea generation is done, there will be an open mic and networking time to find a team. In addition, after you have registered, you also will be invited to the hackGSU Facebook group prior to the hackathon in order to discuss ideas and teams.

What should I bring?

You will definitely need your laptop, phone, their chargers, as well as a valid student or government ID. Feel free to also bring along a sleeping bag, and we recommend some comfortable clothes (and a hoodie!).

How can I confirm that my registration was received for hackGSU?

Login to your my.mlh.io account, and choose My Profile > Authorized Apps. Your hackGSU registration will display, including the date that you registered.

Who can participate?

All university students*! You do not have to be a computer science major to participate in the competition! If you're someone who is willing to learn and wants to take a shot at changing the world, no matter what your field is, you definitely belong here.

How much does it cost?

Nothing! Zero! The event is absolutely free for all participants. We will provide you with the venue, food, Wi-Fi, etc. You just need to show up.

When is the deadline to register?

The deadline to register is on March 25th at 11:59pm EST.

I am not near to Atlanta, is there travel reimbursement?

TRAVEL REIMBURSEMENT REQUESTS ARE CLOSED. Travel reimbursement requests will be available while funds last. We will be providing up to $200 in individual travel reimbursement this year, while funds are available, for requests received before the cutoff. (If we are not notified in advance of your travel reimbursement request, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that we will be able to reimburse you).

How do I obtain travel reimbursement?

Travel reimbursement requests will be available while funds last. We will be providing up to $200 in individual travel reimbursement this year, while funds are available (see above), for requests received before the cutoff. To obtain the travel reimbursement, you must have receipts. You must not live or go to school in Georgia to be eligible for travel reimbursement. TRAVEL REIMBURSEMENT REQUESTS ARE CLOSED. Funds will be dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the timestamp of your entry in the pre-event Travel Reimbursement Request Queue. Examples of eligible travel expenses include gas, airline tickets, etc. There will be plenty of free food at the HackGSU event, so we are not reimbursing food expenses. We are not reimbursing hotel expenses at this time (you are welcome to bring a sleeping bag).

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes, we abide by the Major League Hacking Code of Conduct.
