MangoHacks is a place for discovery. It is a 36-hour hackathon that encourages learning, collaboration, growth, innovation, and fun. We will welcome 250+ students from Florida and across the country, amazing mentors, and wonderful sponsors to create amazing things. MangoHacks is organized by students for students.
What is a Hackathon?
Don’t worry, this is not the kind of place where you break into a bank or do something illegal. A hackathon is a creative coding and invention marathon. Students come together with an idea or a passion, get into teams, and build that idea into something tangible in 36 hours. At the end of the hackathon, the teams will show what they built to judges and other participants. A hackathon is an awesome place to push yourself, learn new skills, and meet amazing people.
Who can come?
Anyone who is currently a college student or who graduated in the past year is welcome to participate. If it has been a while since you were a student you can still participate as a mentor for the attendees.
What do I need to bring?
You’ll need an ID and the stuff you’ll need throughout the weekend. Laptop, chargers, phone, the basics. You’ll probably also want to bring some basic hygiene products (toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, a change of clothes) and anything to keep you fresh through the weekend. A sleeping bag might be cool, too, if you plan on getting some sleep.
Food? Oh yeah
Lots of it. Free, too! We’ll make you feel right at home. Enough food to keep you going for the entire 36 hours and then some. Caffeine, energy drinks, snacks and all. We’ve got you. If you have special needs, it’s all good too. Did we mention there’ll be lots of food?
