We're back for round two. Get ready to meet in Lexington, Kentucky this spring for a weekend of discovery, creation, and fun. You'll have 24 hours to make your dreams reality. Free food, great swag, and lasting friendships are only some of the things you'll find at CatHacks II.


CatHacks? What's that?

In April 2015, CatHacks was the first national Hackathon to be held in the state of Kentucky. This time, we're making it even bigger. This spring, tons of hackers will travel from colleges across the nation to Lexington, KY in order to flesh out ideas in the field of technology.

Who can attend?

In order to attend CatHacks, you must be a student at a post-secondary university. We accept high school students on a case by case basis.

What if I'm not that great at programming yet?

All we require is a desire to learn and a drive to create. Sign up anyway! Spots are limited, but we'll see what we can do.

How much does it cost?

CatHacks is completely free to all accepted members. This includes meals for the weekend and any swag sponsors may bring.

How do I get there?

If you're coming from a college nearby, you might want to look into carpooling with others! Parking will be available in two different areas on campus. More information will be sent out at a later date.

Will there be travel reimbursement?

At this time, we cannot promise travel reimbursement. If you require travel reimbursement to attend CatHacks, please mention this on your application. If anything changes, we will reach out to you personally.

When is CatHacks II?

It will take place during the Spring 2016 semester. The official date will be announced by the end of November 2015.

Where is CatHacks II?

It will take place at the University of Kentucky. Specifically, the majority of the event, including check-in, will occur at the Ralph G. Anderson Building.

What should I bring?

You'll probably need some kind of a computer. Make sure you bring chargers for any devices you're bringing. In addition, bringing a sleeping bag and pillow will allow you to get some sleep if you can't stay up for 24 consecutive hours. Finally, make sure you bring any toiletries you'll want for the weekend, including a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and a towel.
