*******

HackISU is a new hackathon for all students at Iowa State University.

A hackathon is an event where people who are excited about programming come together and collaborate to build cool things. Entrepreneurs, designers, and developers work in teams to create hacks and apps for web or mobile platforms — in our case, these creators are university students.

HackISU is open to all current ISU undergraduate and graduate students, including freshmen! You don't have to be a computer science major or even an engineering student, though it's best if you have some coding experience. You aren't required to have ever attended a hackathon before. You can come with a team, come by yourself and hack alone, or come alone and we'll help you find teammates.
