Applications will be opening in August 2020!

Due to COVID-19, DemonHacks will be hosted online via Discord and Twitch for the safety of all our participants and organizers!

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

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!
