Anyone who is 18+ may apply.
Build whatever you want! We will have workshops and mentors to help you build and present websites, mobile apps, VR games, sign-language translating gloves, and more! However, submitting previous work only cheats yourself of the opportunity to learn and grow at this educational event. Please respect yourself and those around you by presenting only what you create during HackSMU.
