solve problems by using technology.
Participants form groups and create projects that tackle these challenges, all while attending workshops to
develop new skills, receiving mentorship from industry leaders, and networking with recruiters from top
Do I have to come to the workshops before the Hackathon?
No. Each workshop and event is designed to be independent, however we'd love for you to come to as many as you can!
Who's organizing BlockHack?
BlockHack is organized by developers, for developers. The Hacking Club at the University of Delaware also provides a lot of support.
Is there a theme?
Anything on a Blockchain goes. Come ready to build projects with impact!
Sounds cool. So, can I come?
Absolutely. BlockHack is open to everyone. Whether you're just getting into DLT, or you've been mining Bitcoin since 2010, there's something for you here! We'll also provide
resources before and during the event to help sharpen your skills!
We've also made arrangements to let attendants stay overnight.

No, everyone must signup before the event. This helps us get an accurate count of attendants so we order enough food.

have before hacking begins to find a group.
