HopHacks sounds like a Johns Hopkins-only event, but it’s open to all college students.
The latest edition of the 36-hour hackathon is slated for Feb. 17-19 at JHU’s Homewood campus. It’s a stop on the Major League Hacking circuit.
The event begins on Friday evening, with participants breaking into teams to create a software or hardware project. They have until Sunday morning to complete a project. In between, there’s Midnight Pizza, Soylent and even some games without screens.
Organizers are planning to give away prizes of up to $1,000, and sponsors also dole out their own awards at the end. We’ve seen projects go on to get funding from other Baltimore entrepreneur-backing orgs, as well.
This particular edition will kick off with a keynote from Eric Conn. The Hopkins grad is CEO of D.C. IoT startup Leverege, and will talk about the company’s work as well as innovation in the Baltimore-D.C. area.
