Welcome to HoyaHacks! We are Georgetown University’s premiere hackathon and every year we host students from across the globe for a 36 hour coding convention. This year, we’re fully virtual! Our goal is to bring together students interested in building something cool, with the bonus opportunity to network with industry professionals and win awards! Any and all skill levels are welcome!
HoyaHacks 2021 is over, thank you to everyone for a wonderful hackathon! Please check back next year to join us for HH2022!
