Last year, ConUHacks gave almost 400 students the opportunity to create and interact with students and tech industry professionals. This year, ConUHacks will be a 24 hour hackathon with 400+ participants. It will be held at Concordia University in the heart of downtown Montreal, Canada. The event is open to all university students that have a passion for creating things with technology!

Students will form teams of four to work on their project (or 'hack') for 24 straight hours. Projects are open format, which means that you can hack on web, mobile, desktop, or hardware applications. Company mentors will be available throughout the event for questions to make sure beginners and experts alike will have the help they need to successfully develop their project. All teams will demo their hacks at the end of the event and winners will be chosen by company mentors.
