Educate. Collaborate. Innovate.

SF Hacks is an entirely student run, student driven hackathon that hosts over 600 of California's most talented collegiate engineers, designers, and developers in a 24-hour hackathon.

Here, students are given the opportunity to create, learn, and experiment. Students are encouraged to create websites, mobile apps, games, and more. This is where we will turn cutting-edge ideas into reality.
