Small but


nwHacks Micro is the first big hacker event of the year. We're putting together an 10 hour event for everyone to get a taste of what the full nwHacks experience will be like. Come out, make friends, and hack together something extraordinary.

Rules & Overview

Each team will have 30 minutes to setup and show their demo in ICCSX250.

A panel of judges will score the hacks based on creativity, UX, innovation and societal impact.

All hacks must be started only from scratch starting at 10am on September 27th, 2014. External libraries are allowed to be used but original code must be used for the actual hack. Failure to do so will result in immediate expulsion.

All hackers must abide by the code of conduct, found here. Any hacker found violating this code of conduct will be disqualified and asked to leave the premises immediately.

Teams must be 1-4 members to compete. Teams larger than 4 people will be broken up into smaller teams.

All Hacks must be submitted to the ChallengePost by 8pm for their hack to be considered for judging purposes. Late submissions will not be considered.
