HackGTeeny is an annual hackathon oriented towards beginner hackers at Georgia Tech. You can learn the basics of hacking with our workshops. They include git, web development, and Android. Everyone will start with the git tutorial, and then you can choose other workshops to get hacking! Each team will be paired with a mentor that will help you with your hack, and prizes will be awarded once the hackathon ends for both participants and mentors.

As long as you're a current Georgia Tech student, you're eligible. Prior experience isn't required, but if you do have some, you can mentor for us here! Teams can be up to four members — you can register with your team or create a team at the event.
Bring your laptop, headphones, and anything else you need to hack comfortably. We'll supply hardware, snacks, and meals for the whole day. This hackathon won't last too long, but feel free to bring anything that makes you comfortable. If you're still not sure, ask us!
Everything at this hackathon is absolutely free. The only part that makes it worthwhile is your effort and determination. Indicate any needs in your application and we’ll reach out to take care of you.
As said before, the universe discourages it because it’s an illusion of true innovation. Well maybe, but we'll be teaching you a better way to hack and build your own projects, so why take all the fun away?
HackGTeeny will take place in the CULC in lecture halls 144 and 152.
