40 Hours of Hacking
The only thing you'll need to worry about when you get here is hacking. We'll take care of the rest. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, (energy) drinks, some awesome PennApps and sponsor swag, a place to sleep- all gratis.
With various side events like a nerf gun fight, midnight run, raffles, video game room, and more, you're going to have a great time both during and outside of hacking. As a past participant put it, "The worst part of PennApps is coming back to the real world."
Open to all students
PennApps is open to current undergraduate and graduate students at all schools. Students at past PennApps have come from as far as Michigan, McGill University, and Duke University, and we will be expanding even further across the nation in the spring.
