How does CodeDay work?
It’s a 24-hour event where students get together and build cool things together! You pitch ideas, form teams, and build a cool app or game in 24 hours!
Is this a “hackathon”?
CodeDay is a place for people who are interested in learning something new and meeting new people. It is not focused on winning awards or getting jobs, so we do not call CodeDay a hackathon.
Can I attend if I’m not in high school or college?
Please contact us before registering if you are not currently in high school or college. If you register without contacting us, we will unfortunately need to turn you away at the door.
What should I bring?
Bring your laptop and mouse. Food is included in your ticket. If you’re planning on sleeping, bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and toothbrush. Desktop PCs and monitors are also allowed, although less common.
I don’t know how to code!
No problem! Part of the fun is learning how to program when working with other people. We’ll also provide some great workshops that you can attend. Or you can always just hang out and have fun!
Where will I sleep?
If you plan to sleep, you may sleep anywhere in the workplace or in a designated room. Remember to bring a sleeping bag!
