SystemsHacks is a 12-hour, beginner-friendly Hackathon run by the Software Systems Student Society! Many students from all over SFU have attended SystemsHacks in the past for the sense of community, technical experience, and prizes! Everyone is welcome to apply below!


This year's SystemsHacks theme is ScuffedHacks. Challenge yourself by finding new ways to apply tools, technologies, and programming languages! You don't have to worry if your project is assembled with tape, glue, or coffee, because that's the theme of this hackathon!
