LexHack is a hackaton where students of all programming abilities, from no experience to advanced, compete to develop an application that is judged at the end of the day.
We will have mentors on hand to make sure even those without experience will build a complete application. The event is free, and we will provide food and swag (including stickers, t-shirts, and more). We will also award prizes in several categories to our winners.
Please visit our website for registration and more information - http://lexhack.org. We hope to see you there!
Anyone currently enrolled in high school may attend, as well as middle schoolers on a case-by-case basis.
You can create your application using any technology you would like, as long as it meets one of two criteria for submission:
- You can provide source code that anyone can run (e.g. code in a language with a readily-available compiler)
- You can provide a working executable for Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, or Android, as well as source we can view (e.g. a project written with a proprietary compiler, such as an iPhone app).
