Ready to hack, Halifax?

We’ve been hungry for our next hackathon ever since the Global Game Jam in January, and this time we’re open to anything: Hardware, software, games – if you can hack it, you can make it! This is a 48-hour event with an option to stay at Volta overnight.

The Point

  1. Make something awesome
  2. Meet others in the dev/design/tech/startup community in Halifax
  3. Show off what you made and compete to win a $1,000 cash prize!

What’s the schedule like?

Friday Night will kick off with mingling, introductions, idea pitching, and team formation.

Teams can either start developing their app on Friday night, or decide to start fresh Saturday morning.

Keep working on your hack until Sunday, when we’ll have pitches and award the prizes!

What’s the food situation?

Food and beverages will be provided throughout the event, including pop, coffee, breakfast, lunch and supper.


Up for grabs is a $1,000 cash prize!


This time, we’ll hold an open vote to decide the winning hack. All hackers will present a short pitch on Sunday and vote for their favourite pitch, the votes will be counted and the winning pitch team/individual will be announced.
