Don't worry, we're beginner-friendly...
Feeling nervous as a hackathon novice? We’d love for Cal Hacks to serve as one of your entry points to tech and entrepreneurship. Each year, sponsors and student organizations host workshops for a range of experience levels, including beginners who are looking to pick up a new skill or stack! Here are some of our staples…
...and our prizes are too!
We love to see the courage and creativity of hackers breaking into tech for the first time —
if your team comprises completely of hackers who have never entered a hackathon before, you can submit your
project for our Baby’s First Hackathon track.
But even if this isn’t your first rodeo, we value hackers whose motivations are to empower marginalised communities through their projects.
