Special Event
Speaker:  HackUMass VII

HackUMass is one of the premier hackathons in the Northeast. Occurring annually in October of the fall semester, HackUMass provides an opportunities for students to put skills they've learned on their own and in the classroom to work. We provide students the unique opportunity to unwind from their regular coursework and spend 36 hours developing cool and crazy ideas, providing them with the hardware and expertise they may need and giving the opportunity to connect with dozens of industry professionals from a wide range of technology companies.

Our hackers come from all around the country and from many diverse backgrounds. Veteran hackers, first-timers, developers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and even non-tech majors -- this is who we are. Our goal is to bring together and inspire hackers from every background and provide opportunities like Ladies Storm Hackathons to continue growing in diversity.

At HackUMass, we believe that it's our duty to provide all the tools necessary to create awesome hardware hacks! With Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, circuit components, quadcopters, Oculus Rifts, and more, we have the hardware, you have the ideas, so come bring them to life at HackUMass.

HackUMass wouldn't happen without the support of our awesome sponsors. From startups to big-name brands, we work with the innovators and the makers. Workshops, tech talks, sweet prizes, swag, mini-competitions, hardware/APIs -- we partner with the best in the industry to make this event come to life.
