About nwHacks

Join hundreds of hackers across the world at nwHacks on January 21-22, 2023! Apply by December 25th, 2022 to participate as a hacker, mentor, or a volunteer.

Whether you're a seasoned hacker or you're just getting into tech, nwHacks welcomes you; just bring an open mind and an insatiable desire to learn, and we'll take care of the rest. Create a project, learn new skills, and bond with friends, old and new — all in 24 hours.

We're back in person!

Last year, we connected over 650 of the brightest developers, engineers, and designers worldwide to collaborate and create amazing projects online. This year, not only are we back in-person, we will also be bigger and better than ever! We will be returning to our regular in-person operations, and providing you with a more traditional hackathon experience. We look forward to seeing you—whether we are reuniting or meeting you for the first time—at nwHacks 2023.
