The third annual QuHacks, a hackathon started by Marriotts Ridge alumni, will be taking place on Saturday, December 8th at Towson University from 9am to 6pm.

A hackathon is essentially a coding marathon: a real-time coding fair where students develop an idea and bring it to life through code. In the past, students have created games, websites, apps, robots, Arduino projects, and much more! Participants will not only have the opportunity to explore computer science in a friendly environment, but will also learn new concepts and network, develop, meet and collaborate with like-minded people. Programmers of all experience levels, whether completely new to coding or extremely experienced, are welcome! 

We will also be providing workshops for those who want to learn more. This year, we will be hosting Java, Python, and Web Development workshops, which will be taught by the QuHacks organizing team and Towson computer science majors.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, QuHacks is completely free, and includes free breakfast and lunch for all participants, as well as freebies such as t-shirts, lanyards, and laptop stickers. Winners will be able to get prizes such as drones, Google Homes, Bluetooth speakers, and more!
