UBC Okanagan’s 24-hour premiere hackathon returns for second year

BC Hacks 2.0 scheduled for February 20, 21

BC Hacks 2.0UBC Okanagan’s 24-hour premiere hackathon is back by popular demand.

BC Hacks 2.0 is the second iteration of the hackathon, which provides people with technical backgrounds a venue for self-expression and creativity through technology.

The event, organized by the Computer Science Course Union, brings together tech-enthusiasts from across the province who are asked to form teams around a problem or idea, and code a unique solution from scratch. These solutions are most often in the form of websites, mobile apps and robots.

BC Hacks 2.0 also offers a platform for those with minimal experience to explore the world of technology hands-on. Plus, by joining a team, students are able to boost their resumes and practice soft skills, all while competing for $4,000 in prizes.

The event takes place on February 20 and 21, with applications closing on February 14. No previous experience is required, and applications are free to submit.
