By the hackers. For the hackers.

Nowadays, hackathons are rampant with negative influences. Whether it be cheating, bad judging, horrible mentors, or an uncomfortable venue, it's hard to perform your best at hackathons lately. That's where we come in. After months of attending various hackathons and surveying the attendees, we're ready to present a hackathon that allows the competitive coder in you to roam free.

ProHacks is bustling with organizers and mentors experienced in the computer sciences, whether it be machine learning or web development. Our team is there around the clock to make sure that the Pro Hackers are never lost in their code.  

Unlike other hackathons, here at ProHacks, we have a group of volunteers at the ready checking people's code every 2 hours on GitHub, with participants required to submit commits to their code on a per hour basis. Despite its inconveniences, this way we can assure that everybody has a fair shot.

Although it won't be confirmed until the day of the actual hackathon, we have some really great prizes planned out for all of the Pro Hackers. We'll have some swag for everyone, but for those of you who go above and beyond, and really blow our minds? We've got something special in store for you.

Judging Criteria

  • Implementation
    Forget about how practical the project is, did you do it well?
  • Used Tools
    APIs, libraries, and Frameworks used.
  • Skill Cap
    How difficult was the project to program?
  • Code
    We will do a deep dive into your code. This is more of an abstract criteria, as it’s mostly to legitimize the project
