FAQ

What is a Hackathon?

A hackathon is an event that typically ranges around 24-48 hours for students to collaborate on creating a solution (could be an app, game, or website!) and showing a demo for the chance to win prizes!

Is experience required?

No experience is required at all! BusiHacks is completely beginner friendly! We will have workshops on different computer science topics and give you ALL the knowledge you need so you can show off your amazing coding skills for your app!

Do I need to have a team?

You can either choose to fly solo or can get in a team of up to 5 members. If you don't have a team but would like to be in one, we will have a team formation session during our Networking session for you to find the team of your dreams!

Who can participate?

Anyone that is a student in highschool or college can participate. (Incoming freshmen for either highschool or college count too!)

What do I need in order to prepare for the hackathon?

A laptop or computer of some kind, good internet service, and a fluffy blanket (optional) to keep you cozy while you code or watch our amazing workshops.
