Frequently Asked Questions

What's a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event during which people from different backgrounds come together to create a project from start to finish in a limited time frame. Check out some examples from last year's HOTH here!

Applications for HOTH X are open to anyone! However, we are prioritizing UCLA students for our prize tracks as well as in-person hacking.

You can work by yourself or in teams of up to 4 people total.

Don't worry! You can create one the day of! We'll be leading team building activities before and at the start of the event, so you can find the people you vibe best with.

The hackathon will take place on Sunday, March 5, 2023 and it will be 12 hours long. While check-in will begin at 8am and the closing ceremony will end around 11pm, the actual hacking portion will be from 9am to 9pm.
