What is a hackathon?

Major League Hacking says a hackathon is an “invention marathon.” Anyone interested in technology can attend a hackathon to learn, build & share their creations over a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. You don’t have to be a programmer, and you certainly don’t have to major in Computer Science!

Where and when will this event be held?

Black Wings Hacks will be held virtually via the Airmeet platform from February 2 – 4, 2024.

How much does it cost to participate in this event?

Nothing! This event is free to all student members of Rewriting the Code.

Is there a code of conduct for this event?

Yes! By participating in this event, you agree to the code of conduct (sponsors, too!), so you should read it. The TL; DR of it is that harassment and abuse are never tolerated; if you are in a situation where interacting with an event organizer or hacker makes you uncomfortable, please report it to

Yes, you can wait until January 18th to upload your resume and ensure it will reach all the companies. You can upload your resume any time before the event, but after January 18th, we can only guarantee that some companies will see it prior to the event.

Do I need to upload a resume?

No! A resume is not required.

I don’t have a full team together. Can I still register?

Yes! You can register as an individual, a partial team, or a full team.

I don’t know anyone who could be on my team. Can I still come?

Yes! If you sign up as an individual, we will put you in a slack channel where you’ll meet with other individuals who need teammates.

How large can my team be?

Teams can be up to 4 people or as small as three people.
