Oh, and by the way - we'll have free food, swag, and activities for you throughout the weekend! Check out everything we've got planned for you!
We want to give the best experience to the creative minds of the tech community and beyond. Here are a few highlights from the perspective of our hackers:
Hacking at BoilerMake made me realize my potential as a creator. Taking advantage of what the weekend had to offer made me lifelong friends and gave me the opportunity to explore what I enjoy most in my field.
BoilerMake gave me the resources and support I needed to create a project I was truly proud of. If you have an idea and a passion for creating something from scratch, don’t let this opportunity pass you up!
BoilerMake has been the perfect event to build some exciting projects with some great people. I have always had fun spending the weekend alongside other hackers, and it is a great opportunity to learn more while creating something new.
A hackathon - or hacking marathon - is an event that promotes self-expression and creativity through technology. Anyone with or without a technical background can attend to learn, build, and share new things. Hackers form teams around a problem or idea, collaboratively build or code a unique solution from scratch, and compete for prizes with other teams.
Yes! BoilerMake is an all-expense paid experience. We provide hackers with the venue, swag, and food throughout the weekend.
No problem! Come to BoilerMake to learn a new skill and meet people. We'll have tech talks, a Slack workplace to ask questions, and engineers from sponsoring companies to help you build something you can be proud of. This is your best chance to learn alongside so many other driven hackers.
BoilerMake is possible through the support of our amazing sponsors.
