MadHacks is a hackathon with a long, successful history in the Madison area and has been one of the largest hackathons in the midwest. It's been sorely missed for the past three years, and it's time for a resurgence!
Hackathons are 24-hour events where teams of up to four have a friendly competition to create the best projects, products, and more. Food, prizes, mentorship, and events are all available.
Hackathons give you the environment to make amazing, fulfilling projects in a short amount of time surrounded by driven individuals. Resumes benefit from Hackathons; interviewers sometimes ask about hackathon participation! The free food doesn't hurt, either.
YES. Hackathons are made to be beginner friendly. Mentorship, talks, and workshops are available, which all allow for you to grow your abilities quickly.
