Hacker Booklet


MariHacks Learnathon Material


What is MariHacks?

MariHacks is a 24 hours long hackathon that will bring together over 100 developers and technology enthusiasts to create revolutionary software projects. Meet fellow hackers, learn new technologies, and hone your skills alongside amazing mentors.

Whether you're making your first app or have lots of experience, join us for an amazing day of hacking!



"Hacking", in the context of a hackathon, means leisure and exploratory programming. Don't worry, you won't be creating malicious software or hacking the NSA!

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is where you turn your crazy ideas into real stuff. It is an event where beginner and experienced hackers gather together to work on innovative solutions to real-world problems. At MariHacks, you can look forward to amazing guest speakers, helpful workshops, skilled mentors and, of course, awesome hacking!

What if I don't know how to code?

Then you've come to the right place! We will have great workshops for beginners as well as experienced mentors to help you build something you can be proud of.

Is there a cost?

Nope! We provide meals, drinks, snacks, swag, workspace and WiFi for the day.

Who can come?

MariHacks is open to all enrolled CEGEP and High School students. This year we are mainly welcoming students from Montreal, New York, and Boston.

How do teams work?

Teams have a maximum of 4 members. You can select your teammates when you register or you can register individually without specified teammates.

What if I don't have a team?

Don't worry! We will have team formation sessions at the beginning of MariHacks so you can find some teammates!

What will I eat?

We will provide food, drinks and snacks including lunch and dinner! We'll do our best to accommodate all allergies and dietary restrictions.

What should I make?

Anything you want! You can come with an idea, or come up with an idea at the hackathon. However, we ask that you only start coding when the hackathon begins.

What should I bring?

All you need is a valid student ID card and a laptop!

Where is it?

MariHacks 2020 will be held at the Shopify offices in Downtown Montreal.
