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 participate in the hackathon, you must be in a team of at least 2, but we do recommend forming a team of 3-4 members. You can register your team through or eventbrite page, where one member would need to form the team and the rest register as part of that team.

If you don't yet have a team, you should join our discord server and we'll fill you in during our team-forming session. You might even find some people to team up with!

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

Of course! The hackathon isn't a competition to find the Next Top Programmer, it's a learning experience! We'll have workshops throughout to help you learn if you're a total beginner. If you're not, you'll definitely learn something new and valuable!

Focus on having fun and challenging yourself! You can choose to focus on participating in the challenges, spending time in events, or even just making new friends and connections.

What do I need to register?

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

What about the prizes?

We're DOUBLING (that's right) the value of prizes we're giving out this year! Up to $6000 in prizes will be given out to the top 3 teams.

Would I get swag and merchandise?

Yes and YES! You'll get swag and merchandise by participating in our event. We're working hard to bring you cool swag that will get you right in the hacker mood.

We'll set up a limited-quantity booth at the Memorial University of Newfoundland before the event and another booth after for you to pick up your swag.
