Leading up to the hackathon (May 24th — 27th), we’ve got several workshops and activities dabbling in new tech and topics dubbed Hype Week. Who said that developers were boring sticks in the mud?

All of this builds up towards the grand finale — the TOHacks 2022 hackathon happening on the last weekend of May (28th-29th). Dive into 24 hours of coding mayhem and even more workshops as you develop an award-winning project.

TOHacks 2022 Hackathon Weekend

TOHack 2022 is a digital-first hybrid hackathon — meaning that communications, mentorship and judging will be digital. We’ll have a dedicated on-site location for participants to meet, and greet with their teams and the awesome TOHacks crew.

Your day will start off with opening remarks at 11 AM and then it’s off to hacking at 12 PM EDT on Saturday.

If you need a breather (or, some inspiration!) we’ll be holding several workshops throughout Saturday afternoon.

Otherwise, it’s pretty much non-stop spaghetti coding until Sunday, 12:00 PM EDT where we’ll have a power hour to support project submissions.

The rest of the afternoon is judging, followed by some fun activities with our crew and closing remarks + project winners.

Join in on the action — no sleep deprivation required

Applications for TOHack’s mentors and judges are now open!

Mentors:

  • Provide insight, knowledge, and experience to the competitors.
  • Give constructive advice by helping participants manage their goals/expectations.
  • Connect with new people, expand your knowledge, and have a fun experience!

Judges:

  • Provide objective, unbiased insight and evaluation of the assigned projects.
  • Present a positive and encouraging demeanour to the teams.
  • Connect with new people, expand your knowledge, and have a fun experience!

Feel like you fit the bill? The deadline to register is May 21st, 11:59 PM ET.

What are you waiting for?

Crack those fingers and update your IDE, for we’ll have more information right off the press and in our socials as we approach the end of May.

Until then, how about checking out TOHacks 2021 for some inspiration or our Medium for strategies on making Viable Hackathon Projects?
