Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season
Nashville Skyline

Welcome to VandyHacks IV

Founded in the spring of 2015, VandyHacks was the first collegiate hackathon to call Nashville, Tennessee home. Now, we're proud to bring you VandyHacks IV! From October 20-22, 2017, 400+ students from colleges and universities across the nation will gather at Vanderbilt University’s Engineering and Science Building for a weekend of collaboration, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

 

For 36 hours, participants will work together to bring their ideas to life - and have lots of fun doing it! VandyHacks welcomes beginners, and we encourage all students to apply, regardless of their major or background.
