TINO HACKS INFO
TinoHacks II is a two day long, 350 person hackathon hosted by Cupertino High School students where both new and experienced programmers can work together on projects, learn new skills, and have a splendid time. TinoHacks I happened on April 15-16, 2017, and TinoHacks is coming back on April 7-8, 2018 with our second event! It is backed by Hack+, a 501 (c)(3) public charity registered in CA. All donations are tax - deductible. Please feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.
Enlightened by the experience I had at TinoHacks last year, I decided that I was going to replicate that feeling for other people. The mentors helping me with my project for several hours gave me valuable lessons about technology and the perseverance and discipline required takes to make things work. Keeping these in mind, I applied to be a organizer and part of the TinoHacks family, on a mission to not just give back, but give more.

Prizes will be given out to the top three best hacks, best beginner hack, and best domain name, among other awards.. Prizes include JetBrains Licenses, Snapchat Spectacles, and Amazon Gift Cards!
TinoHacks is a great way to begin your programming experience! A basic understanding is recommended, but we will have workshops and mentors to help you make your project idea a reality. You will be permitted to go home at a certain time, though staying the night is highly recommended. The doors will close at 7pm and open at 7am, and no persons are allowed to leave or enter the building during that time.
