HackCulture is an interdisciplinary student hackathon that will run from February 2 to March 1, 2019. Each weekend will include a different team-based mini-challenge that will encourage participants to learn new skills. The last week will be spent working on a final project, to be presented and judged at the March 1st finale. The goal of HackCulture is to make working with data more accessible to all, encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, and help to build a community of peers and mentors across campus.
Students from the humanities and social sciences, who may be left out of “traditional” hackathons, are highly encouraged to attend but all the students are welcome. Registration is due by January 20; more information can be found at the website https://publish.illinois.edu/hackculture/.
