Major League Hacking 2021 Hackathon Season

About Us

DandyHacks is the University of Rochester’s annual 42-hour long hackathon. This year will be our 10th anniversary, and we’re so excited to hold this amazing milestone in-person! As a fully student-led organization at a tier 1 research university, we embody our school’s values, encouraging participants to question the world and learn more.

DandyHacks is very beginner-friendly, and we welcome students from all backgrounds and majors. Participating in DandyHacks is not just about winning; it is about collaborating with peers, learning from mentors, and gaining valuable experiences. This year, DandyHacks will take place on Oct 14-16 in the Feldman Ballroom. We hope to see you there!
