A different kind of hackathon.

Hack@Brown is all about learning. Spend a weekend with us and 350 other students to take a step out of your comfort zone. Make Hack@Brown your event by experimenting with a new platform, API, or that idea that’s always been on the back of your mind.

Whether you’re building your first website, dabbling in Photoshop, or hacking with an Oculus Rift, Hack@Brown is for engineers and designers at all levels. We’ve got everything you need to carry out your craziest ideas—amazing mentors, yummy food, and did someone say swag? :)
