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 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!
