When/where is MHacks?
MHacks 6 will open the doors for hacker registration on the evening of Friday, September 11th on the University of Michigan's North Campus. More details will become available as we near the event.
What should I bring?
Bring your laptop, phone, student ID, toiletries, water bottle, a change of clothes, and a well-rested and open mind. We'll do our best to get you anything else you need.
What can't I bring?
Weapons of any kind, drugs, and alcohol.
What can I hack on?
We'll be providing lots of awesome hardware to hack on, courtesy of our sponsors. Stay tuned to this page and MHacks social media for updates.
How will I get there?
After your registration is confirmed and you receive word that you're coming to MHacks, we'll share information about buses and travel reimbursements. More than likely, we'll be sending a bus to a school near you.
If I fly, will I be reimbursed?
Not everyone who sends in a reimbursement request will receive a reimbursement. Each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and reimbursements will be given out accordingly.
What if I don't have an idea?
No problem! Many hackers arrive at a hackathon with little to no idea of what they'll be building. Check out our API expo to see what's available to you from our sponsors. Aim for a prize, or don't. Totally up to you.
What if I don't have a team?
A few weeks before MHacks, we'll connect registered hackers with a database of other available hackers looking for a team. If this is your first hackathon, there will definitely be others who don't have prior experience that are looking for team members, so don't worry.
What if I live far away?
We are able to provide travel reimbursements for hackers depending on location and availability of transportation. Travel reimbursements must be explicitly approved, and you will be notified if you receive a reimbursement.
What if I don't want to hack?
We invite you to come see the expo on Sunday as everyone finishes up their hacks. We'll be sharing more information about the public expo soon. If you don’t want to hack, please do not fill out the MHacks registration application.
