March 26-28, 2021
In 2019, a small group of students began to plan the University of Windsors first ever hackathon, and the Windsor regions second MLH event. By March the next year, their ambitions had lead them further then they ever expected, overcoming massive challenges to host one of the most successful tech events in #YQG. WinHacks 2020 laid the groundwork for digital hackathons worldwide by pivoting to an innovative virtual model in just two weeks. Challenges focused on mobility, cybersecurity, new tech like blockchain, entrepreneurship, health, and more.
This years' event will feature similar themes, challenges, and goals, while once again breaking new ground for digital events. WinHacks 2021 isn't following the tried and true format - it's taking things a step further with pre-event content, better networking and recruitment opportunities, a plan to support hackers after the event with strong project follow-through and a commitment to a better way to find the mold breakers of tomorrow.
WinHacks is currently looking for sponsors to work with, to bring our vision to life. We would appreciate your help in creating a memorable conference for passionate computer science students; who will be the future leaders of the Canadian computer technologies industry. If you or your company is interested in being prominently feature among the Future of Computer Science, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
