ARE YOU A FIRST TIMER?
We welcome coders of all experience, whether you are a beginner or been hacking for years.
Oakland Hacks II will be hosted on April 22nd at the Kapor Center for Social Impact in Downtown Oakland, 2148 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612. This location is walking distance from the 19th street BART station and is easily accessible from various bus lines.
OHacks II is targeted toward Oakland High Schoolers, however it is open to all high school students that would like to participate. If you’ve already graduated from high school, but would like to participate, you can come help mentor others.
We are hosting this hackathon in Oakland because we aim to improve diversity in the tech world, and what better place to do that than one of the nation’s most diverse cities? We would like to provide support to the introduction and continued education of minority groups in tech.
Oakland Hacks is the first high school hackathon in Oakland run by high school students. A Hackathon is an event in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. During OHacks II, participants will build and present their creations in just 12 hours!
