Registration for Hacks with Friends is open

Registration opens on April 12 for the Hacks with Friends event

Register today and make plans to participate in the 2021 Hacks with Friends (HWF) — a fun-filled event where you break out of your everyday work, join a team and collaborate to build a project (or hack) from scratch to show off in a competition! The 2021 HWF event will take place virtually over the course of the first three Fridays in May (May 7, 14, and 21).

HWF is open to any and all IT and technology professionals and advocates who work at the university, regardless of role. Project managers, analysts, developers, UX designers, documentation specialists, designers, security specialists, trainers, desktop support specialists, cheerleaders or whoever else you are…We invite you to be a part of this “hackathon.” Pick up new skills, make new connections, and explore new technologies and innovative ways of providing IT services. The only limit is your imagination.
