Whether a coding expert or a beginner, all Utah college students and high school seniors are invited to HackUSU 2023, Utah State University's annual 24-hour, intercollegiate hackathon. The free gathering is set for March 24-25 on the USU campus.

Eat. Sleep (not). Code. Repeat.

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn to code or tinker with hardware, or maybe you’re a card-carrying-techie-programming-whiz. Whatever your skill level, all Utah college students and high school seniors are invited to participate in HackUSU 2023, Utah State University’s annual intercollegiate hackathon. The free, 24-hour gathering is set for Friday and Saturday, March 24-25, in Huntsman Hall, on the USU campus in Logan.

The gathering features workshops for all skill levels, including beginners. In addition to introductory and advanced programming topics, the meeting features such topics as quantum computing, systems engineering, technical writing and funding your own startup.

The hackathon begins with check-in at 3 p.m. Friday, March 24, and continues through March 25, with an awards ceremony and prize drawing Saturday evening. Participation is free, but all participants must register at the event’s website.

HackUSU provides opportunities to network with other students as well as industry professionals. Free food and snacks, including Aggie Ice Cream, will be offered throughout the 24-hour gathering.

HackUSU, hosted by the USU College of Science and USU’s Huntsman School of Business, is supported by private industry sponsors.
