Dream. Develop. Deploy!

McHacks isn't your typical hackathon, and our hackers aren't either! For 24 hours, over 500 of the boldest young minds in North America come together for a weekend of beginner-to-pro workshops, decked-out hardware, delicious food, and some epic hacking.

Whether you're writing your first line of code, playing around with APIs, or building the next blockchain, McHacks has everything setup for your next big hack. We hope you'll join us this Winter as we jump into round 6 of Canada's original collegiate hackathon!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a coding event where participants (hackers) spend 24 hours working in teams of 1-4 people to build and code projects (hacks). Bring your ideas and we'll give you everything you need to bring it to life.

What should I bring?

You should bring your student ID and anything you’d need for a productive, healthy, and fun weekend: laptop, phone, chargers, deodorant (!), change of clothes, etc. Don't worry about food and drinks, we've got you covered there.

How will I get to McHacks?

We'll be sending a number of buses to nearby cities to get you to and from McHacks. We'll also have travel reimbursements available on a case-by-case basis.

What if I don't have a team or idea?

Not a problem! We'll have team-forming activities to help you find teammates and brainstorm ideas. There'll also be workshops to learn technologies that could spark an idea to hack on.

Who can participate?

Students at high school, CEGEP, and undergraduate levels are welcome to apply to McHacks! If you're under 18, we'll need a parental consent form.

How much does it cost to attend?

Absolutely nothing! Admission is free, and includes food and drinks, snacks, workshops, (lots of) swag, and an epic weekend!

What if I don't know how to code?

With beginner-friendly workshops, mentors around the clock, and friendly hackers around you, McHacks is the perfect place to push your first line of code! We'll have everything to help you build something you're proud of!
