Hack at YHack

YHack is an international hackathon hosted by and held at Yale that brings together 1000+ hackers and creatives from all over the world.

YHack is a festival of innovation, an arena of tech warriors, and a stage to present your big idea. Jam packed into 36 hours is a rainbow of events (talks, food, rap battles) that go on through the night while caffeinated teams hack on a Python app or program arduino-driven pumpkins to battle over Twitch.
