Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season

AUHack 2017

March 31st - April 2nd

What is AUHack?

AUHack is Aarhus University’s largest hackathon. Over a 36-hour period from March 31st to April 2nd, students interested in IT development and IT design will meet and collaborate intensively over a weekend to create prototypes and concepts.

Your goal is not to create finished products, but to come up with ideas, play with new technology and make new hacks. It is an opportunity to share your ideas with different people, build cool stuff, learn from each other and from our mentors and just have fun.

Our goal is to bring students from different fields of study and universities together, and to set a framework where you can carry out your projects and ideas. Students from all study programs are welcome, and everybody is there to help each other and have fun so apply now!

Free food

36 hours of hacking

Can I attend?

If you are a student and above 18 years old. Students from all study programmes are welcome.

Is it for free?

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors we will provide free food, swag, snacks, drinks and a place for you to sleep at the hackathon.

How can I apply?

You must fill out the application form. After completing the form, the AUHack team will send you an email confirming your spot.

When is it?

AUHack will start in the evening of Friday and end Sunday at noon. All work eligible for prizes must be worked on and completed between this time and can't be prepared from home. Throughout the hackathon small events and relevant talks will be hosted. For a more detailed schedule see below.

Do I need to have a team?

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 to find a team Friday when people arrive. We recommend groups of 3-4 persons, but anything between 2-5 is allowed.

I cannot code. Can I attend anyway?

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.

Can I build on my hack before the event?

No. Thats 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.

What can I win?

You have the fantastic opportunity to learn new stuff and make new friends, isn't that just great? Everyone will be a winner! ...Okay, we will also have some awesome prices.

Can I sleep at the AUHack venue?

There will be rooms to sleep in, that is if you have time! You will have to bring your own bedroll, sleeping bag and pillows though.

How do I get there?

After your registration is confirmed and you have received word from us that you got a spot at AUHack, we will share travel information on how to arrive at Aarhus University. If you are a large group of students, we will most likely be able to send a bus to your University.
The address is:
Finlandsgade 21, 8200 Aarhus N

What do I need to bring?

Need to have: Laptop, cellphone and your chargers. A sleeping bag, pillow if you need, toiletries, clothes and a well-rested and open mind. If you want to hack on hardware, you might need to bring it yourself. You won’t need to have: a pre-determined team, an idea for a hack, nor food and drinks. Also, there is absolutely no reason to bring bad mood.
