Sure, you should definitely attend! Whether you have written lots of code or just have a creative soul, this hackathon needs you! In true hackathon spirit all students are very friendly and willing to help each other out.
Yes, we’re not kidding you. Thanks to our sponsors we will provide free food, swag, snacks, drinks and a place for you to sleep at the hackathon. Plus, there will be mentors, workshops and judges only for the sake of YOU.
You have the fantastic opportunity to learn new stuff, try out your skills and make new friends. Isn't that just great? Everyone will be a winner!... Okay, we will also have some awesome prizes.
No. That's not fair. You can come up with ideas, but not build them. You are of course allowed to use libraries, frameworks and templates for your hacks.
AUHack has been home to a wide variety of projects, from amazing hardware projects to the coolest VR Games and the most useful services and apps.
We always have a wide spectrum of hardware available, provided by the different labs at Aarhus University, as well as by our sponsors. A detailed list will be available as we get closer to the event!
We have the pleasure of being able to use all of the hardware from chomskylab.dk!
The way this works is:
1. You make an account on the website (in the "AU-ID" field put EXTXXXXXX where the Xs are random numbers if you are not from here),
2. Browse the website and find the hardware that you want to use,
3. Go to the nice LabTools people near the info stand and tell them the hardware that you would like to use,
4. Wait a bit while they go and get the hardware, and
5. Use the hardware for your awesome hack!
You will most likely also need some wires and such - just ask for those as well.
When hacking ends you will have to take everything apart again and return it to the LabTools people. See the schedule for when you have to do this.
No. You are more than welcome to make a team before the hackathon, but loads of people come without a team. We will help everyone find a team Friday night. We allow groups of 3-5 persons, but recommend groups of 4.
Sign-ups for this year's AUHack has closed.
You might think that a hackathon is for programmers only, but that’s not true. Technology and code is one thing – creative minds, bright insights and strategic eyes are another. So, as long as you are a student above 18 years old, you are more than welcome – no matter what university or study program in higher education you attend. Actually, we believe that the more different people we are, the better.
Laptop, cellphone and chargers aswell as a sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, clothes and a well-rested and open mind. If you want to hack on hardware, you might need to bring it yourself. What you won't need to bring is a pre-determined team, an idea for a hack, nor food and drinks. Also, there is absolutely no reason to bring bad mood.
AUHack will start in the evening of Friday at 13:00 and end Sunday at 15:30. All work eligible for prizes must be worked on and completed during this period of time and can't be prepared from home. Throughout the hackathon inspiring events, talks and mentoring sessions will be hosted. For a more detailed schedule see above.
There will be rooms to sleep in. You will have to bring your own bedroll, sleeping bag and pillows though.
