Auburn University's First Major League Hacking Event!

We are Auburn University’s first-ever programming event organized by students, for students. With this hackathon, Auburn University's Computer Science & Software Engineering strives to promote technical innovation and highlight students’ skills and abilities. Partnering with Major League Hacking (MLH) for the first time, we aim to bring out the best and brightest students, not just from Auburn University but from other universities all over the United States.

On February 2, 2019, this 24-hour, full-steam-ahead event will challenge participants to learn, think outside the box, and push the limits on what they can build using technology.
