Major League Hacking 2018 Hackathon Season

Stay tuned for MadHacks Spring 2018!

What happens when you mix hackers and electronic medical devices? Come to MadHacks and find out! We'll have hardware, mentors, introductory projects, tech talks, team challenges, games, and activities for everyone interested in computer science, information security and biomedical engineering.
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.
