RamHacks is a 24-hour programming marathon for innovative developers to design and implement a software or hardware application of their choice. Specific themes and challenges provided by our sponsors will be presented to competitors. This will be the fifth Hackathon organized at the VCU College of Engineering. The goal this year is 350 participants.
Students may work in teams of up to four members. Cross-university teams are encouraged. RamHacks gives creative programmers a chance to make someting innovative together. The Department of Computer Science is hosting this hackathon to ignite spirits of students in a competition with no creative boundaries.
Please note if you intend to participate in this event you agree to the MLH Code of Conduct.
Attendees must be enrolled in a college or university, and must agree to the MLH Code of Conduct. Are you a UX enthusiast with design on the brain and art in your heart? Maybe you’ve got mad business skills and an entrepreneurial spirit? This event is about so much more than programming, so register!
Don’t leave home without a valid ID. Be sure to bring a sleeping bag if you are planning to stay overnight. If you’ve got your own hacking equipment, make sure to bring that too..
You can build your own team if you’d like, or we’ll get you synced up with a team when you arrive. Please limit your team to no more than four people. Seriously, any more and you’d need a SCRUM master to coordinate your hacking!
No. You own what you make! VCU will have no bearing on the rights to any of the projects you create at RamHacks!
Don’t worry, we’ll have hardware to rent for the weekend. Mentors will be on-hand to support and troubleshoot.
No, no and NO! Our favorite RVA restaurants will be here to supply delicious eats—and we’ll have video games ready if you need a breather from creative coding. Hear the latest programming technologies, tips and techniques at our Tech Talk sessions. In addition, Major League Hacking and our sponsors will throw down some special challenges with prizes you don't want to miss out on.
