HackGT is returning to Georgia Tech October 13 - 15th.


What should I bring? Bring your laptop, charger, headphones, and anything else you need. We'll supply hardware, meals, and snacks. More to come soon!
Who is eligible? Any student over the age of 18 enrolled in a college or university is allowed to participate, but anyone can be a mentor or volunteer. Teams can be up to four members - you can register with your team when you apply, or any time after you’re accepted, but you can also create a team at the event!
Are there any costs? The event is free, thanks to our sponsors! We will offer travel reimbursement -- just indicate where you’re coming from when you apply, and we’ll reach out to you.
Can I use past projects? True to the spirit of hackathons, you may not submit your past projects to HackGT.
Do I need any experience to apply? Experience isn’t required. Hackathons are a place to learn for anybody at any level. Some of our past winners are also first-timers at a hackathon. But, if you’re still not convinced, like our Facebook page for updates about workshops or events we’ll host before HackGT that’ll teach you some introductory skills!
What do people make at hackathons? Check out our submissions from last year. You can even download and try them out yourself! There’s really no limit to what you can make. Last year, we received submissions like a pop-up VR food menu, or a tool to make music with your hands. Don’t be afraid to think big!
More questions? Ask us! Shoot us an email at [email protected]

Travel Reimbursement Deadline: August 31

Final Deadline: September 15

Applications for participants are now closed. See you soon!

Mentors and volunteers - apply here

All attendees, mentors, volunteers, and staff are required to adhere to the MLH Code of Conduct.

At HackGT, we want to show our appreciation for all the hackathon legends before us. There are many amazing individuals responsible for the amazing community we have today. To show how much we love them, we would like to invite alumni of the hackathon scene to apply to be special Alumni Mentors for HackGT 4!

Accepted mentors will be flown out to HackGT this year and help take us to #NewHeights by teaching, inspiring, and of course providing mentorship to the participants.

If you're someone who loves hackathons and wants a chance to come down to Atlanta apply today!
