Join us in our fifth year of solving pressing social issues using your creativity and code

How can we design, program, and deploy a better tomorrow for everyone? Hack for Humanity, Santa Clara University's social good hackathon, poses this question to you. Will you answer?

As part of a team of 2-6 people, you will have the chance to develop tools and applications which can be used by those in your larger community to make the end user's life better! In the past, we've seen teams build interactive preliminary health diagnosis applications using Amazon's Alexa, as well as beautifully crafted websites which help low-income families search for jobs.

Throughout the 24-hour coding marathon, there will be talks on exciting technologies, fun break activities, and free food!
