Sponsor uOttaHack

Before we start, here is a message from the team:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding our event virtually, instead of an in-person event. The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates on our website and social media channels should there be any changes to our event.

Ottawa's largest
hackathon has
turned 4!

uOttaHack is uOttawa's largest hackathon and this year will be its more exciting iteration yet! To commemorate this special milestone, uOttaHack 4 is expanding the hacker experience with new initiatives to create an unforgettable weekend for its hackers, VIRTUALLY!

COVID-19 has brought the greatest medical challenge that world has seen in our generation. For uOttaHack 4, we are bringing hackers together to help build solutions for issues our local community is facing due to COVID-19. After reaching out to multiple local businesses such as hospitals, nursing homes and hotels, we have created challenges that will help the city of Ottawa recover. Details to be announced!
