After a successful online hackathon during COVID, this year ConUHacks is coming back in-person to welcome 800 passionate individuals for 24 hours of hacking, learning, and networking activities. As Concordia University's annual hackathon, ConUHacks will be held once again in the heart of downtown Montreal, Canada.

Students will form teams of four to work on building a project from scratch for 24 straight hours. Our hackathon's projects are open format — students are free to build web, mobile, desktop, or hardware applications of their choosing! Mentors will be available throughout the event for questions to make sure that beginner and expert hackers alike will have the help they need to successfully bring their projects to fruition. By the end of the event, all teams will demo their hacks, and winners will be chosen by our judges.

ConUHacks is an event open to students of all levels, from high school to university, with a passion for technology. Bring your excitement, creativity and desire to learn, and we'll be taking care of the rest to provide you with an unforgettable hackathon experience.
