14 hours where students create technological solutions to problems in their communities

November 23, 2019 @ Italian Canadian Club in Milton, Ontario, Canada

Students at a Workshop at the Hackathon Hack Penn

HackNight is a 14-hour hackathon where students use technology to create solutions to problems that their local communities face. A hackathon is a place where students come together and use technology to solve problems and win prizes! HackNight has no affiliation with any school. This event is an independently organized and run event.

HackNight is a place where students with almost no experience in technology can come to learn and create technological solutions to real world problems. You’ll walk away with new technical, design and business skills, a project to brag about, and maybe even a prize!

Students hacking away at projects at the hackathon Hack Penn


HackNight is open to students of all levels, which is why we hold workshops on technical, business, and design topics to help you create the best possible project. We also have a lot of fun activities planned throughout the event along with great speakers and panel dicussions. There will be quiet zones where you can catch up on some sleep too!
