The small but EPIC hackathon. Come out and build something awesome with friends and make new connections friends and learn something new! Beginners to pros are welcome at nwHacks Micro.

nwHacks Micro is the first big student hacker event of the year in UBC. We're putting together an 10 hour event for everyone to get a taste of what the full nwHacks experience will be like. Come out, make friends, and hack together something extraordinary. 


Teams of 2-4 can participate and can be formed either at or before the event. Each team will have 5minutes to pitch their app to the crowd and to a panel of judges who will score the hacks based on creativity, UX, innovation, ecofriendliness and societal impact.
