Hack Arizona is supported by some of the best and most exciting companies in the world. These companies engage with attendees throughout the weekend, provide challenges to implement their technology, and help foster our world-class community of innovation and entrepreneurship.
Please note that events and times are subject to change :)
Our offical Hack Arizona prizes, and the prizes that will be given away by our sponsors will be announced the week of the hackathon.
As a Founder of Hack Arizona and current software engineer at Pinterest, Ian Tracey has an immense passion for helping hackers rapidly innovate and validate their ideas; while wishing to live in a future where technology can serve as a catalyst for immense social change.
Yes! Attendees, volunteers, and mentors will all be able to register on site - but we encourage those planning on attending to sign-up as early as possible.

Unfortunately not. We allocate our budget to try and provide the best experience possible, and are unable to offer this at this time.
Our official prize categories will be announced during the week of the event, to ensure a fair playing field.
All of Hack Arizona is free for our attendees. This includes free food and drinks!
All experience levels are welcome. Beginners or those just curious about programming are encouraged to attend and participate in our many free educational workshops!
Don't worry! We have a team pairing event at the beginning of the weekend, and you can talk to other attendees in our Facebook group to start planning ahead. If you're unable to find a team, you can still compete for prizes or attend our workshops and fun activities!
All attendees will have to abide by the rules at MLH.com
All university students are welcome to attend! Students under the age of 18 are also welcome to attend, but will require a parent or guardian to be present.
We recommend bringing everything you would for a weekend with your friends, or camping. So aside from your usual computers and things to program and hack on throughout the weekend, this includes the usual vacation items like a sleeping bag, jackets! (it sometimes gets cold in the desert),tooth brushes, tooth paste, showering items (towels, etc). You are also required to bring a copy of a government ID (drivers license), and a recent student ID card.
Anywhere in the Library. We will have dedicated sections on the 4th and 5th floors. There will be no additional lodging provided by Hack Arizona, and no sleeping will be allowed in any venues besides SEL.
Main Gate Garage, Tyndall Garage, and 6th St. Garages are all free throughout the weekend. Additionally, Park and Highland Garages are available, but further from the event. Please note that parking is not available in Second St. or Cherry Ave. Garages.
