FAQ

What is PioneerHacks?

At a hackathon, attendees learn, build, & share their creations over the course of a weekend. PioneerHacks is a great opportunity for beginners and advanced programmers to meet up with friends, enjoy some free food, and have fun programming a project you’re passionate about.

Who is the event open to?

PioneerHacks is open to high schoolers in grades 9-12 across the Bay Area. If you are a college student/company representative and are interested in mentoring, volunteering, or leading a workshop, make sure to email us at [email protected] to let us know, and we’ll get back to you!

What if I don’t know how to code?

No worries! PioneerHacks III is open to programmers of all experience levels - from total beginners to advanced coders. What matters most isn’t your previous experience, but rather your interest in technology and your passion for creating something cool! There will be plenty of mentors and workshops available to help you out with your project.

What are the team requirements?

You can either create a project individually, or with a team of up to 4 members (including yourself). It’s highly encouraged to join a team, as you’ll be able to have more people working to create a more refined product, and will definitely have a lot of fun with your friends with you!

What should I bring?

You should bring a laptop, phone, chargers, a student ID, toiletries, a sleeping bag, and any other accessories that you might need for your project. We’ll provide food, but it’s always a good idea to bring snacks in case you’re feeling hungry!

What if I can’t stay?

If you need to leave for the night, you will be allowed to (with a parent signature) at certain times. However, it is recommended that you stay for the night so that you can work on your project for the full allotted time. Specific timings on when you can leave and enter the building will be listed soon, so check back for updates!
