What is SacHacks?

Design. Code. Launch. SacHacks is the first major intercollegiate hackathon in the Sacramento, California area. Our passion is to cultivate the untapped potential of those in Sac by providing them with the opportunity to launch their ideas in a public venue. We provide the place, you bring your ideas, and we have a friendly competition between all creative coders to launch their ideas into action during a 24-hour hackathon.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Due to continued poor air quality from Camp Fire, will SacHacks continue as planned?

    Yes! SacHacks will move forward as planned with safety at the utmost importance. Due to a deficit of masks in the surrounding areas, we were only able to obtain a limited amount of masks for majority of our participants. We encourage participants to bring their own mask if possible.
