A different kind of hackathon.
Get ready for a weekend full of learning new technologies, making great friends, and pushing your limits. We'll provide plenty of healthy food, awesome swag, and everything you need to carry out your craziest ideas.
Everyone is welcome.
Whether you're making your first website, hardware hacking with an Arduino, or getting started with design, Hack@Brown is for you. We'll have great workshops, mentors from Oracle, Dropbox, Google (and more!), and most importantly, the perfect atmosphere for learning something new.
Ready? Let's go.

Creativity and Originality
Is it an out-of-the-box solution? Do they approach the problem in a unique and creative way?
Does it accomplish its stated goal? Does it work as is, or does it require additional resources?
Is it easy to understand and use? Design does not have to be visual.
Does it solve a real problem? How many people would it help?
