DemonHacks is a 26-hour hackathon hosted by DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. DePaul’s Loop campus is right next to the Art Institute of Chicago and Millenium Park.
Applications are now closed for 2019. Check back again next year!
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 ;).
