MOUNT ALLISON UNIVERISTY
Think it. Learn it. Build it.
MtA Hacks is a computer science conference hosted by Mount Allison University. We aim to build a computer science community and inspire technological innovation by encouraging high school and university students across the Maritimes to learn, build, and pitch projects. 2019's hackathon will focus on tech for environmental sustainability, and feature workshops, industry booths, and social events.
There are two streams: a 12-hour stream targeted at beginners and a 16-hour stream targeted at more experienced programmers. Registration is open to students of all experience levels and has no fee.
