HopHacks, the biannual 36-hour hackathon at Johns Hopkins University, will
take place from Friday, 17 February to Sunday, 19 February 2017. For 36
hours, students work in teams of up to four people to bring a software or
hardware idea to life. Teams that submit hacks are eligible to win prizes of
over $1000, as well as many sponsored prizes. Students coming from
Georgetown, UMDCP, and UMDBC will be on the Maryland/DC bus.

Slideshare Karaoke, and Super Smash Tournaments to the event.
In addition, HopHacks offers catered food and snacks for hackers and mentors
throughout the weekend. Participants often look forward to “Midnight
Pizza” as a well-deserved reward for their work.

promptly after. Teams are arranged to present to judges in a science fair
style. Participants have the opportunity to demo their own work, as well as
