February 22 - 23

@ Make School SF

What is SRC Hacks?

SRC Hacks is a 24-hour long hackathon where students from all around California come to create and show off their own software & hardware projects. We provide a venue, food, drinks, swag, etc. all at no cost to ensure every attendee has the best experience possible while building their projects!

What's New This Year

This year, we will be hosting our second annual SRC Hacks event. Last year, we had hundreds of attendees submitting all sorts of projects, with $20,000 in prizes being given away. For SRC Hacks II, we plan to scale up and improve all aspects of our event, from the attendance to the food & swag to everything in between. We've learned a lot from running SRC Hacks last year, and can't wait to see you at this year's bigger and better event!
