Each year, over 500 hackers from schools across the nation come together to hack and have fun. Don’t have a team? No problem. BoilerMake will facilitate team building to help you meet new faces and come together to form the perfect group.

Create Amazing Things

Meet the people who make it all possible. Engineers from sponsoring companies come to help hackers with their projects. You can ask specific questions about a bug in your code, or gain insights into their careers. Sponsor tables are a great place to learn about new technologies and real-world applications of your skills. Some sponsors may even provide fun activities or free swag!
