East Lansing - Michigan
SpartaHack 2017 is Michigan State University's third annual student-run hackathon. On the weekend of January 20th, we're bringing together 500 students of all skill levels and disciplines to get creative with tech, connect with peers and professionals, and forget the words "I can't." We're excited to see what you will create!

SpartaHack is a 36-hour programming marathon and competition held at Michigan State University on the weekend of January 20th-22nd. We provide tons of meals, snacks, nap spaces, and swag, free of cost so all you need to worry about is making something cool.
SpartaHack check-in will begin at 6:00pm Eastern time on Friday, January 20, 2017. Our opening ceremony will begin that evening at 9:00pm, and our closing ceremony is scheduled to end Sunday, January 22, at 6:00pm.
Unfortnately, we have run out of space in our venue so we can no longer accept new registrations. Hopefully we can hack with you next year!
Anyone who is currently a student or has graduated within 12 months of SpartaHack! Graduate students, undergrads, and high-school students from any field of study are welcome.
Definitely not! No programming experience is necessary; we have workshops and mentors at the event to help you learn about a variety of topics.
Whatever you want to! A lot of people use hackathons as an opportunity to learn a new piece of tech, while others work with tools they know already to build something more challenging. You can check out last year’s projects here.
