The 11th annual CrimsonCode hackathon is coming to WSU on Feburary 18th - 19th, 2023. We are partnering with Major League Hacking and are sponsored by Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, and Brooksource. At CrimsonCode, we aim to cultivate an inclusive environment where participants with diverse backgrounds and perspectives can come to be inspired and innovate. The CrimsonCode hackathon is a 24+ hour event that provides a venue for self-expression and creativity through technology. People with technical and non-technical backgrounds come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code/create a unique solution from scratch.

The event is completely free, fully catered, and no previous coding experience is necessary. We encourage people from all different majors to come and join us. Towards the end of the hackathon, projects will be presented and winners will be chosen. This event is a great opportunity to meet new people and network with different majors, industry professionals, professors, and more!

If you are interested or have any questions regarding the hackathon, please follow us on Facebook for more information!
