DemonHacks is a 26-hour hackathon hosted by DePaul University that encourages students to investigate new ideas and develop new solutions.

The event is being hosted at DePaul University’s loop campus in our College of Computing and Digital Media building located at 243 S Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60604.

Of course! Hackathons are a great place to learn new technologies, meet new people, network with sponsors, add something to your resume, and eat some free food ;)

A hackathon is an invention marathon. Students come together to build cool software & hardware hacks over 24-48 hours. It’s very beginner friendly.

Nothing, attending a hackathon is free!
