Who are we?
HackWesTX III is Texas Tech University's second student-run hackathon! This year, the hackathon will start Saturday, February 25th and end Sunday, February 26th. The hackathon will last 24 hours total!
But why tho?
We are developers who encourage each other to do better. It's not just about writing code or programming hardware, it's about making a positive impact in our community. We want to empower the next generation of learners that will change our world and hackathons are a great opportunity to do just that!
Sponsoring a hackathon is a really good way to get in touch with best and brightest students there are within a college community and do so in a casual and convenient environment.
