Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a sprint-like event where developers collaborate to build projects that solve challenges. At Frontera Hacks, hackers can look forward to educational workshops, learning from skilled mentors, and, of course, fun games and great swag.

Who is this event for?

Students from all backgrounds are welcome at Frontera Hacks. No extensive knowledge of programming is necessary.

Do I need a team to participate?

While teams are not required in order to participate, it’s a great way to meet new people and create something together. Teams may have up to 4 members, and you will have a chance to meet other hackers at our Team Formation events and in the Discord server!

What is the cost to participate?

Nada, nothing, zilch. There is absolutely no cost for applying or participating in Frontera Hacks. We want to make this event as accessible as possible to all those interested so make sure you apply!

What if I don’t know how to code?

No experience is needed — whether you’re a coder, an artist, a designer, or a writer, you’ll get a chance to work with various mentors, attend workshops, interact with companies, and learn alongside fellow participants.

What if I need special accomodations?

Frontera Hacks prioritizes accessibility and accomodations that make our event welcoming for everyone. Please list any special accommodations in your admissions, or contact us with any other concerns.
