Participants (“hackers”) spend 48 hours working in teams of 1 - 4 people to build or code or design projects (“hacks”) that they’re excited about. There are workshops, mentors, and swag. You bring your ideas, and we give you everything you need to make them come to life.
Any college or university students are welcome to attend.
Hacks generally fall under one (or more) of the seven cortices: Web Development, Android, iOS, AI/ML, AR/VR, Game Development, and Hardware.
MataHacks encourages students of all levels to come! In addition, we will have workshops throughout the hackathon as well as mentors available to answer any questions.
Nope! We’ll have lots of resources including workshops and a sweet mentorship system to help beginners get started. We will also dedicate one room to new hackers and have several project ideas to help you get started.
Click on register and fill out the form. You will then receive a followup email from us with information about the hackathon.
Registrations will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Space fills up quickly, so apply early!
Register individually for now and include your teammates' emails in the 'anything else' question. We'll have a tool in the near future to get teams set up.
All teammates need to register, as well, because we will be able to send out emails to them and follow-ups for upcoming events.
The max size of a team is 4 members and a leader for a total of 5.
After entering and reading the rules on discord, you'll find the #find-a-team channel where you will be able to meet other participants and see the projects they are thinking of creating. If you have an idea, post it in the #find-a-team channel and if anyone wants to take part in it, they can reach out to you. Or if no one reaches out to you, you can join a team that you would like to work on.
When you and a team are fully formed, the owner of the team can use the command .createteam to create a team with the bot @MATAHACKS, for example: ".createteam team name". The bot will create a role with that name and a category consisting of a voice/text channel only that role can see. To invite others into your team, the owner can use the .invite command, for example: ".invite @user @user @user". There is a max of 5 users that can be in a team.
We’ll be releasing decisions weekly soon after the registration opens.
We are a group of university students from CSUN, California State University, Northridge that are apart of different STEM clubs on campus that have come together to create this out of the goodness of our hearts.
