FAQ

What is Los Altos Hacks?

Los Altos Hacks is a high school hackathon—a 24-hour programming event where students work in teams to make hardware and software projects. This year, we aim to have around 350 attendees with an even gender ratio.

Who can participate?

Any high school student can participate. If you've graduated from high school, you can only apply to be a mentor. If you're in middle school, you may be able to participate; please contact us at [email protected] for more information.

How do I form or join a team?

There will be a session at the beginning of the hackathon for you to meet others and form teams. Each team may have a maximum of four people.

Does this cost money?

No! Los Altos Hacks is free for all participants—food, swag, and other costs are covered. We don't provide travel reimbursements, however.

What if I can't code?

No problem! Experience isn't required to attend. Plus, we'll have workshops where you can learn.

What should I bring?

Bring a valid student ID, a laptop, chargers, and the signed Parent Packet (you can also complete it online). Power strips, sleeping bags, and toiletries are highly recommended.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

No problem! If you have dietary restrictions, simply add them to your application when you sign up, and we will accommodate for you! Additionally, each meal will have vegan, gluten free, and vegetarian options for everyone.

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes, there is! All attendees are required to review and abide by the MLH Code of Conduct during the event.
