RamHacks is a 24-hour hackathon extravaganza where all are welcome. Yes, that means those with serious coding skills as well as programming newbies. Take the chance to collaboratively design and implement a software and/or hardware application of your choosing.

Are you ready to ignite your hacking spirit in this no-creative-boundaries competition?


Attendees must be enrolled in a college or university, and must agree to the MLH Code of Conduct. Are you a UX enthusiast with design on the brain and art in your heart? Maybe you’ve got mad business skills and an entrepreneurial spirit? This event is about so much more than programming, so register!
