The theme of this year’s hackathon is what we can do today for a better tomorrow. The future may seem like a long way off, but it’s our actions today that dictate what tomorrow will be like. By acting now, we can make small changes that could snowball into big ones — and even solve big problems before they become too big to solve.

The hackathon is open to everyone regardless of how far you are in your studies or your field. Earlier hackathon or programming experience is not required — an interest in developing something new and towards sustainability is enough.
