Hack@Brown is all about learning. Spend a weekend with us and 500 other students to take a step out of your comfort zone. Use Hack@Brown as an opportunity to experiment with a new platform, API, or that idea that’s always been in the back of your mind!
Whether you’re building your first website, dabbling in Photoshop, or hacking with an Oculus Rift, Hack@Brown is for individuals of all backgrounds and experiences.
This year, our theme is ‘Greenhouse.’ Get ready to experiment, design, and build.
In your submission, include a link to your public Github repo and a video (max. 2 minutes) explaining your project.
