Get hyped to ✨hack and chill✨ with us January 29-31, 2021 at HackUCI’s SEVENTH iteration! 🤩

▶️ Apply @ www.hackuci.com by January 24th!

HackUCI is our annual 36-hour hackathon open to ALL majors and levels of coding experience. We’ve held all of our past HackUCI’s at UCI, with last year’s numbers boasting 500+ attendees, 1600+ applicants, and 90+ projects submitted. However, taking current safety measures into account, HackUCI will be held online this year. Additionally, to ensure there are fewer nerves while turning in DevPosts on time, HackUCI has been extended an additional 4 hours, making this HackUCI’s first 40-hour hackathon! There will be incredible prizes, outstanding workshops and mentors, as well as an opportunity to connect with our amazing sponsors. Although the place and feel of the event may be different, the core of HackUCI is still the same:

Create. Connect. Inspire.

Create what hasn’t been built yet, Connect with talented individuals online to work on something great, and Inspire those who seek to learn and be inspired by others.
-
Interested in being a mentor at HackUCI? 👀 Mentor applications are open! As a mentor you will provide guidance to hackers on how to scope out and build a project, assist Hackers with technical questions, and help foster a positive team and hackathon culture 😊.

We are on our fourth post for our Hackathon 101 series! 🤩

This week is: ✨Why should I attend a hackathon?✨

There is a lot that you can gain from attending a hackathon. People often learn a new coding skill during the event and gain a new project they can add to their resume. Hackathons are also a great time to bring an idea that you’ve always had to life. Other benefits are having fun with your friends, attending workshops and panels and potentially winning cool prizes.

We are on our second post for our Hackathon 101 series! 🤩

This week's question is: ✨Who attends a hackathon?✨

Many people think that only computer science majors can participate in a hackathon, but anyone can participate! If you’re interested in tech then hackathons are a great event for you. There is no experience required as many people often learn new skills during the actual event. Hackathons are perfect for novice coders who want to learn a new skill and experienced coders who want to test their abilities. They are also great for designers, people interested in business and honestly people with any background as ideating and creating a project takes problem solving and innovative thinking. Most college hackathons are open to both high school and college students.

We are starting our Hackathon 101 series! 🎉 This series is meant to provide basic information about hackathons to help people who are unfamiliar with them.

This week is: ✨What is a hackathon?✨

A hackathon is a sprint-like event where coders and innovators come together to ideate and create a project of their interest within the event’s time frame 🕒. These projects can range from software (apps, websites) to hardware (robots, mechanical machines) to design to even business proposals, but most of the time the term hackathon refers specifically to software 🖥️ and hardware 🤖 projects. Hackathons usually bring together students from different schools to compete for prizes and they also provide workshops, panels and other fun activities during the event so that participants can take a break from their project.

Blueprint Datathon is a competition at Stanford, hosted annually by Stanford Health Innovations for Future Technologies (SHIFT: http://shift.stanford.edu/). This event brings together students from diverse backgrounds to apply big data analytics to challenges in healthcare.

We encourage any undergraduate and graduate students with interests in Healthcare, Computer Science, Economics, Mathematics, or Business to participate! Participants will be provided with a few cases and corresponding data sets covering a health/biotech problem studied by industry and academia to uncover meaningful insights.

Participants are expected to use statistical analysis techniques and tools to explore the data provided, and use the insights to make recommendations and qualitative models for adoption by appropriate stakeholders. At the end of Blueprint, groups will present their findings to a panel of judges for a chance to win attractive prizes.

Hi! I'm a HS student from Dubai with some skill in Python, C++ and machine learning (I have done Andrew Ng's course on the same,) and I can learn new things pretty quick. I'm familiar with a number of Ubuntu web server operations and terminal commands. I also have a 1580 on the SAT. I would love to join a team if they have vacancies! Thank you!
Is there any communication channel or group where people can get in touch with each other to form teams for LA Hacks 2020?
Hey! Is there a slack or the like to form groups?
