Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season

Thanks for coming to MadHacks 2017!

Keep an eye out for future events!

MadHacks is UW-Madison's national hackathon. We have run several hackathons of varied sizes. The theme of our spring event was "Games"" with over 50 submitted projects!
Unlike other hackathons, MadHacks is going to be putting emphasis on the wacky, the original, and the downright impossible! Like the mad geniuses, tinkerers, makers, and designers preceding us, we want to test our boundaries like never before! We're reaching out to the highly dedicated risk-takers, the envelope pushers, and the daredevils. We hope to produce a new kind of hackathon: where the winners are chosen by the hackers, and the sponsors feel like they are right in the middle of the hacker community itself—rather than on the outside looking in.
