FAQ

Who can attend?

Any student over the age of 18 can participate, regardless of major, background, or skill level.

Does it cost anything?

Admissions is completely free! Everything is on us. That means meals, drinks, snacks, sleeping areas, and swag are all taken care of. Just bring yourself and your cool ideas!

Any travel reimbursements?

Yes! We will be reimbursing up to $50 for those who keep their phyiscal receipts and submit a project.

When are projects due?

Devpost submissions for projects are due at 11:30 AM, but you are allowed to continue working on your project until 12PM. If your Devpost submission is not turned in at 11:30, your project will not be eligible for judging.

Do I need any experience?

No experience is needed. Whether you're a coder, an artist, or a writer, you'll get to work with various mentors, attend workshops, interact with companies, and learn alongside fellow participants.

Are there teams?

We encourage everyone to work with a team! Teams may contain up to 4 people. We will also be offering a team-building session at the beginning of the hacking period.

What should I bring?

To check in, you must show your Student ID. You should also bring a laptop, chargers, toiletries, a change of clothes, sleeping bag, pillow, and anything else you would need for an overnight weekend. Keep in mind that Hacklahoma will last for 24hrs.

What is the Code of Conduct?

Hacklahoma welcomes students from all backgrounds and values the importance of a safe and all-inclusive space. Anyone attending must adhere to the MLH Code of Conduct.

Isn't hacking illegal?

Yes, hacking is illegal. We define a hack as jury-rigging something inelegantly but effectively, usually as a temporary solution to a problem. Like duct taping a hole in a sinking boat to keep it afloat.

Will there be food?

We will supply food for Saturday’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday’s breakfast with plenty of snacks and drinks throughout. All free of charge!

Can I start my project before?

No, you cannot work or copy past projects. You can brainstorm ideas and collect whatever software and tools you need, as long as the project is completely new.
