Major League Hacking 2021 Hackathon Season DemonHacks


DemonHacks is a 36-hour hackathon hosted by DePaul University that encourages students to investigate new ideas and develop new solutions. Teams of college students will work together to develop a hardware or software hack that they will present to judges for a chance to win prizes! If you have any questions check out the FAQ Section or feel free to email us.


Applications are open now! You can apply at the top of this page.

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!

Though the details are still in development, we'll have an opportunity for hackers to connect with other hackers on Discord and/or Zoom. Teams are limited to four hackers.

Due to COVID-19, some swag will be digital (such as wallpapers). Any physical swag will be mailed.
