HopHacks is the biannual 36-hour hackathon at Johns Hopkins University. For 36 hours, students work in teams of up to four people to bring a software or hardware idea to life. Teams that submit hacks are eligible to win prizes of over $1000, as well as many sponsored prizes from JP Morgan, Siemens, Capital One, Booz Allen Hamilton, and others. HopHacks features educational workshops sponsored by partners such as Deloitte, Capital One, Semester.ly, and Booz Allen Hamilton; mentors and developer evangelists; coding break activities; and snacks such as bubble tea.
The deadline to submit a project is at 9:00am on Sunday, and judging begins promptly after. Teams are arranged to present to judges in a science fair style. Participants have the opportunity to demo their own work, as well as watch pitches from other teams. The judging process culminates as judges select the top 10 teams, and these finalists pitch to all participants during the closing ceremony to compete for the Grand Prize, Runner-up, and Third Place.
