SwampHacks is 36 hours of learning, coding, and creativity. For a whole weekend, students nationwide come together as developers, engineers, and designers. We encourage people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds to attend, learn, and innovate!

This year, SwampHacks will be welcoming hundreds of participants from all over the country to experience software development from the comfort of your own home! Best of all, no experience is necessary to participate! From seasoned mentors to intriguing workshops, SwampHacks supports all student activities and encourages “outside the box” thinking. Join us to meet some of the brightest minds in the world and have an awesome weekend in our virtual swamp.


In addition to a Devpost submission, you need to submit a video demo of your project. You will be judged on this demo.
