Intro to Web Development Workshop
If you ever wanted to learn how to code, this workshop is for you! We'll be hosting an introduction to web development workshop. It'll be self-paced with a mentor to help answer questions along the way. We'll be following these two Code Academy tutorials:
HTML & CSS
Intro to App Development Workshop
Calling all app developers! We'll be hosting an introduction to app development workshop. This will be self-paced with an expert mentor to help out with questions you may have. We support Android and iOS apps. Before you get started, we recommend downloading the required IDEs. iOS apps require a Mac computer and installing XCode through the app store. Android apps can be developed on any type of computer and require Android Studio to be installed. If you haven't started app development yet, we recommend following either of these tutorials:
Android: Beginning Android Development Tutorial: Introduction to Android Studio
iOS: iOS 10 App Development Essentials 1: Create Your First App
Intro to GitHub Workshop
Have you ever worked on a coding project with a team, but have run into trouble sharing code between you? GitHub is an extremely useful and powerful versioning software tool that helps teammates share and update programs between each other. In this workshop, you'll learn how you can share code between you and your teammates. If you haven't already done so, make sure to create an account GitHub's website.

Funniest New Meme
Race to create the next viral meme in under 30 minutes. Memes can be submitted individually or in teams (teams don't have to have the same team members as your hacking team). Competitors decide who wins.
Quiet Rooms Open
We'll be converting two of our rooms into quiet rooms. Quiet hours will be respected and the lights will be turned off. Bring a sleeping bag and a pillow and get a few hours of rest before finishing your hack!
Battle of the Bands!
Are you ready to rock? Get a team of 2-6 people—pull from other teams, whoever is awake at this time!—decide who will sing, play guitar, drum, and play more cow bell! You'll get 30 minutes to pick a song, some props (inflatable gutairs, microphones, etc.) and rehearse. The best crowd-pleasing performance wins!

You can stop making now! Please submit all projects and prepare for demos.
Sponsored by Mapquest
Time to show-off what you've created! Demos will be science-fair style, so everyone can get a chance to see other T9Hacker projects. Even if you didn't get your whole project done, show off what you accomplished, someone else could learn from your successes too!
A final thank you to everyone who made this possible! We'll also be giving out awards for the hacking challenges.
