Los Altos Hacks is a hackathon, an overnight event where people can code a project together. At Los Altos Hacks, you will have 24 hours to make your idea a reality. This year, we're aiming to have around 300 attendees with an even gender ratio.
Contact us at [email protected] if you have questions that aren't answered below.
Any high school student can participate. If you’ve already graduated from high school, you can’t participate, but you can come help mentor others.
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 4 people.
No! Los Altos Hacks is free for all participants — all food, swag, and other costs are covered.
No problem! We are accepting people regardless of experience. Plus, we'll have workshops where you can learn.
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 highly recommended.
The Los Altos Hacks II team consists of Aashia Mehta, An Huynh, Cole Brinsfield, Colin Scholler, Dan Appel (not shown), Grace Gao, Jamsheed Mistri (not shown), Justin Yu, Krizia Araracap, Kyle Sandell (not shown), Oscar Bjorkman, Ryan Huang, Samuel Shi (not shown) and Zooey Nguyen.
Los Altos Hacks is a program organized in partnership with Hacker Fund, a fiscal sponsor for charitable community projects that empower technology education. Hacker Fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity with the EIN: 47-2485464. All donations to our event are tax-deductible.
