Local Hack Day - facilitating an environment for beginner & experienced coders alike
Cipher presents: Local Hack Day, a 12-hour mini-hackathon on December 3rd, 2016.
At a hackathon, people come together and use technology/coding to transform ideas into reality.
Students from all over the GTA will reach Brampton City Hall for free food, prizes, workshops, and loads of other things you don't want to miss out on.
We're facilitating an environment for beginner & experienced coders alike.
If you have never coded before, this event is for you! We're offering the option to add a hand-picked mentor to your team -- someone who has experience with hackathons and coding. You'll work with them to create something amazing.
If you are a seasoned veteran, Local Hack Day is perfect for you! Make a dope project, share your experiences with others, win prizes and more.
Teams are limited to four members. If you request a mentor, they count as one of those four slots.
TL;DR: 12 hours. Free food. Coding. Creation. Prizes.
