Hack Brooklyn is where your quest begins. Step into a world of magic on April 23rd where over 500 of the brightest students across the world will come together to build innovative solutions for causes ranging from homelessness to the lack of diversity.

Over the course of 48 hours, teams of up to four students will collaborate to use the technology of today to solve present-day problems and create the world of tomorrow. Create a project, acquire new skills, and network with other hackers and companies as you learn and grow in the heart of Brooklyn. Whether this is the first time you’ve ever seen a line of code or the hundredth time you’ve published an app, Hack Brooklyn has something for everyone. With a multitude of interactive workshops and events ranging from the basics of programming to the hottest and latest technologies, you’ll leave Hack Brooklyn with something new.
