Hack Western 5 will be taking place from November 23 to 25, 2018. Hack Western is one of Canada’s largest annual student run hackathons and will be held at Western University. Participants will collaborate in teams of up to four to build web, mobile, and hardware projects, while participating in workshops, learning from mentors and competing for prizes.
Hack Western is a student organized hackathon sponsored in part by the Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab at Ivey Business School. This marks the 5th year for Hack Western and this year they expect to welcome over 600 students from across Ontario, Canada and the US.
At Hack Western 4, in November 2017, we saw 476 hackers submit 106 projects. Submissions can be seen here. With every year, we strive to host more hackers, and create a larger impact in the tech community.
