  • Startup Edmonton 10359 - 104 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 1B9 Canada (map)

The annual 24-hour hackathon for novice hackers, first time programmers, and people to try something new. Hosted by the University of Alberta’s Computer Engineering Club, join us at Startup Edmonton November 18th - 19th.

Hackathons are for designing, creating, and building awesome projects. HackEDbeta is a welcoming event that provides a great learning environment for students from any program of study or school (including our high school friends!) Whether or not you have programmed before does not matter! We want you here regardless your level of experience!


Mentors from cool startups in Edmonton and grad students of the University of Alberta will be available throughout the event to help students along with their projects.


Worried about being in a competition? Don’t be! The competition aspect is optional - if you wish to opt out of presenting your project at the end, you can. This hackathon is all about learning something new and the environment will be extremely laid back. The prizes are sweet, and so is the swag!
