WELCOME

Welcome to Music City! 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 V!

 

From November 2-4, 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! We also have some great workshops lined up to help kickstart your projects. VandyHacks welcomes beginners, and we encourage students of all majors and disciplines to apply!
