HopHacks is the biannual hackathon hosted at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. For 36 hours students work in teams of up to four people, to bring a software or hardware idea to life. Last fall, we gathered more than 360 of the most creative and talented students from JHU, MIT, UMD, CMU, Rutgers, NYU, and many more. This fall, we expect to host even more students from institutions across the country. This February 16-18, we welcome you to join the HopHacks community.Click here for more information!
