HackNC is the perfect potluck -- each person has something to bring to the table. Whether you arrive with years of experience and a perfectly puffy souffle, or with three days of experience and slightly burnt cookies, HackNC welcomes you. Here, we believe that diversity, in all its forms, makes for a more interesting and worthwhile experience. You will be provided with not only the resources you need to develop your ideas, but also a rich, dynamic environment in which to collaborate with others on them.
Taking advantage of that richness is as much a part of HackNC as the coding is. Talks and workshops, led by sponsors and mentors, fling open the doors to both new technology and new people. Recruiters from companies across the country provide valuable feedback and broaden horizons. Simply being at HackNC means you will be teaching and learning from those there with you, trying things and stepping out of your comfort zone -- developing, in all senses of the word.
Ultimately, HackNC is more than a hackathon. We are a vibrant community, in which differences in experience inform creation. What can you do with the power of a community? Perhaps a better question would be, what can't you do?
