Hackathons are a fantastic way to learn or improve on new technology skills. Yale's biggest hackathon is YHack, usually held in the beginning of December every year. There are routinely more than 1000 attendees every year from schools all over the world, and any Yale student is guaranteed admission. In 2017, YHack featured over $57,200 in prizes. There are also a variety of other, smaller hackathons that clubs and organizations hold throughout the year, which students also hear of via mailing list.


HackMIT is back again with our annual fall hackathon!

HackMIT 2022 will be held October 1-2, 2022 this year, and we want to see you there!
