Thousands of dollars in prizes!

eHacks is a hackathon that is hosted online instead of at a typical venue. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many hackathons have been cancelled or postponed. In response, we have created a virtual hackathon that aims to take the fun and competition of the hackathon experience online for programmers to enjoy from home. The event will be held from October 9-13th over the online venue of Discord.

hackathon: a design sprint-like event; often, in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, domain experts, and others collaborate intensively on software projects


  • The project topic is given the day of the hackathon to prevent cheating

  • A discord server will be made for everyone to communicate and act as the “venue” 

    • Enables participants to interact with other programmers, creating teams at the even

    • Allows for a flow of ideas and healthy collaboration with other participants

    • With different channeling mechanisms, we can separate the different aspects of the hackathon into specific chat areas


  • With the use of various channels in the Discord server, participants will get the chance to interact with other programmers as well as attend workshops to further their knowledge

    • Healthy competitive collaboration will take place through the open server

    • Mentors and moderators will have specific roles to ensure no harassment of any kind

    • Workshops and other events will take place throughout the hackathon in various places throughout the server
