WHAT IS REVOLUTION UC?

Revolution UC is a college hackathon, hosted every semester at the University of Cincinnati. A hackathon is when people who are excited about programming come together for a weekend and collaborate to build cool things. Entrepreneurs, designers, and developers work in teams to create hacks and apps for web or mobile platforms - in our case, these creators are university students. Projects will be judged based on creativity, technical difficulty, polish, and usefulness.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Revolution UC is open to all high school, undergraduate and graduate students, including freshmen! You don't have to attend the University of Cincinnati; you don't have to be a computer science major or even an engineering student, though you should have some coding or engineering experience. You aren't required to have ever attended a hackathon before: we will have tech talks beforehand so you can ramp up quickly. You can come with a team or come alone. We will have sessions to help people find team members and/or form teams, as well as an idea workshops to help people think of ideas to work on for the hackathon.


WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Laptop and charger, cellphone and charger, change of clothes, toothbrush. The only thing you need to worry about is your hack. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and plenty of drinks (energy drinks) will be provided to participants. If you want to sleep make sure to bring your own pillow and blanket.

FAQ

What if I don't have any experience?

We will have a top shelf team of veteran mentors to help you hit the ground running with ideas and guidance, plenty of opportunities to engage other talented and curious individuals like yourself and of course lots and lots of fun events right when you hit that rough patch. Revolution UC, is a learning and sociable experience for people of all experience levels.

Do I need an idea/team to sign up?

Nope! We'll be sending out a Revolution UC web app that'll help find teammates before the event, as well as hosting an idea generation workshop to help people think of ideas to work on at the hackathon. So you should sign up regardless.

Where do we sleep?

We will have a space near our hacking area set aside for attendees that want to sleep. We'll be buying large amounts of red bull and other caffeinated drinks so hopefully you won't have to.

Where do we park?

Information regarding parking will be sent in an email prior to the event.
