BitwiseHacks is a unique opportunity for secondary school and university students to participate in a fast-paced hackathon
The Basics: BitwiseHacks is a unique opportunity for secondary school and university students to participate in a fast-paced hackathon environment, while competing against their peers for unique opportunities in Hong Kong's vibrant tech and startup space, as well as other prizes.
What's a "Hackathon" Anyways: A hackathon is an event where developers, designers, and entrepreneurs 'hack' together a solution to a problem, and then present their work in a formal round of judging. While the word, "hack," has a generally negative connotation, it is important to remember the context. There shall be no hacking of malicious nature at BitwiseHacks.
Who Should Attend: Secondary and university students interested in entrepreneurship, graphic design, and programming. Since a winning team requires a broad range of expertise, we encourage people with skills in any of these arenas to participate. Pre-event Webinars: Two pre-event webinars will be hosted on the Monday and Wednesday before the event on YouTube, as a live feed. More details about these webinars will be sent as updates to registered participants.
