What is HackHunterdon?

HackHunterdon is Hunterdon County’s annual hackathon – a 24-hour marathon tech product creation competition for technology innovators- organized by Hunterdon County Economic Development, Flemington Community Partnership, and the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce. We’ll have free food, swag, workshops, games, and prizes. HackHunterdon invites you to build a cool, new project, connect with fellow hackers, learn, experiment, and be inspired.

When and where is it?

June 9-10, 2018 at Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington, NJ 08822. More detailed agenda coming soon!

What should I bring?

Bring your laptop and charger for hacking, and toiletries for hygiene. Also bring your passion and excitement. We’ll supply the caffeine!

Who can attend?

Whether you’re new to technology or are an experienced coder/designer, you’re welcome at HackHunterdon! Bring your passion, skills, and willingness to positively contribute to a team and you’ll be good-to-go!

This is my first time and I don’t know what to expect. I’m scared!

Relax. If you got skills, we want you. There’ll be plenty of mentorship opportunities throughout the event. There’s a great piece on hackathons by Dave Fontenot worth reading.

What are the rules?

Be respectful. Please report any activities/behaviors from other participants and/or organizers that make you feel uncomfortable immediately by emailing team@hackhunterdon.com.
HackHunterdon believes that every participant has the right to hack in a safe and welcoming environment and requires adherence to a zero tolerance harassment policy. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, HackHunterdon may take any action its organizers deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact HackHunterdon immediately. We value your attendance. We expect participants to follow these rules at all hackathon venues, hackathon-related social events, and on hackathon supplied transportation.
