The Weekend

One amazing weekend to build exciting, interesting, and innovative things.

You supply the ideas, create teams, and bring a laptop.

We'll supply a great venue, good food, and an incredibly fun time.

The Hack

#lvhack is the Lehigh Valley's first hackathon. For the past five years #lvhack has brought together great teams and great ideas. And quadcopters (aka, great prizes).

Our goal is to provide the best Hackathon experience at affordable ticket prices. We're able to do this when you buy tickets and participate (making #lvhack the awesome hackathon it is) and also with the help of local and national companies and non-profit organizations that sponsor (keeping tickets affordable).

The Details

Anyone is welcome to pitch a project! Teams organically form around the top ideas (and it's completely alright to bring an exsisting team). Then it’s a weekend frenzy of designing, coding, and hacking. The weekend finishes with presentations and prizes!

#lvhack has never been in the same place twice. This year we'll land at the brand new collaborative space in the Bridgework Enterprise Center. It's a great venue, and right across the hall from MakeLV's laser filled makerspace.
