 What is a Guild? How can I be a part of it?

Hackathon Sponsors

Prizes

Learn about APIs

Using APIs opens a ton of functionality you can add to any hack. For this challenge, we just want you to connect any two APIs together, utilize an API, in a project, or even just research up about APIs.

Learn how to Automate

Think about the tasks you do on a daily basis. Is there anything in there you can automate? Social media posts? Sorting your inbox? Sending out the Zoom invite for the family meeting? Pick one, automate it, and submit your hack

Learn about Computer Vision

What if your garbage can could sort your recycling and compost out for you? Build a project that uses computer vision to accomplish a task. Maybe your hack analyzes garbage and sorts it into its respective kind.

Redesign a tool you use

Bad design can be so frustrating! Think about a product or tool you use often and redesign it to make it simpler to work with, more efficient, or simply more beautiful

Create a Connect Four Game

Recreate the classic game - Connect Four. If you’re new to coding, we recommend keeping it simple. If you’ve been hacking a while, consider challenging yourself more by attempting it in a new language or without googling any questions.

Learn how to Manage your Finances

Create an application to help you manage your finances or budget.

Learn about the Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT is a phrase that gets thrown around often, but it doesn’t need to be as daunting as it sounds! If you’ve been curious, this is your sign to learn about it or build your own IoT project.

Create a Text-Based Adventure Game

We’re feeling inspired to go on an adventure after seeing the Local Hack Day branding this year. Create a text based adventure game that will take players on a journey.

Create a Chat Application

A successful adventure requires great communication. Create any application that allows two (or more!) people to chat online together.
