Welcome to Hack Frost!

Hack Frost NL is a student-led initiative at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Founded in 2020, Hack Frost NL organized the first ever university-wide open hackathon with the goal of bridging the gap between the classroom and the workplace.

We are more than just a hackathon. For the Fall of 2021, we are planning to organize workshops/competition to help you boost your skills!

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide students with the critical skills they need to adapt to a very fast growing and evolving tech industry. We facilitate the necessary combination of workshops, events, competitions, and mentorship to ensure a diverse learning experience. Whatever you need to learn, we provide!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an opportunity to learn new concepts about tech and apply them to some cool ideas. These ideas are formulated to create things like websites, apps, or unthinkable solutions to a problem presented by the theme of the hackathon.

Don't worry, you don't have to have experience coding or be an expert with computers to participate, think of it as an opportunity!

Who can register?

Whether you're a high-school student, a university student, or even a recent gradate, you can definitely register!

Mentor and judge opportunities are also open for experienced professionals interested in our event! Email us at operations@hackfrostnl.ca

Do I need a team?

Yes, in order to compete in Hack Frost NL, you must be in a team of 2-4. You can register alone and then find a team in our slack group. Alternativerly, you can create your own team when registering or join one already created by your teammates.

If however you don’t have a team arranged before the event, we will be hosting a team-forming session at the beginning of the hackathon through a Slack channel.

What do I need to register?

Just yourself and access to a computer and internet. Hack Frost NL is FREE for all participants!

What if I don't code? Should I still register?

Of course! The event isn't about who the best programmer is, it's a learning experience! We will run workshops for beginners throughout the event that will help you learn something valuable!

What about the prizes?

We're currently looking for cool prizes that will offer winners valuable experiences. A special prize will be presented to the top high school team. Stay tuned!

Would I get swag and merchandise?

Yes and yes! We're working hard to bring you cool swag that will get you right in the hacker mood. You'll either be able to pick up your swag or have it delivered to your door.

If you'd like to receive our swag, please fill in your shipping information when you register for the event.
