Peel's Top 100 Hackers

3675 Thomas Street, Mississauga

What is PCHACK DAY?

Hackathons are world renowned events that allow for individuals who are passionate about computer programming and computer science to have the showcase and develop their skills. Our hackathon will last for 9 hours and throughout the hackathon individuals will have the option to attend workshops, work on their group project, and network with other like minded individuals.

 

PCHackers, an organization based out of Port Credit Secondary School, is organizing this event to give Peel students the opportunity to attend a hackathon. Hackathons hosted in the GTA are usually in Toronto or Hamilton, making it harder for students who live in the Peel region to attend. Thankfully, Applewood School has been generous to assist us in hosting the event at their school, giving us and competitors access to technology specifically designed to help those with disabilities.

Four Categories

Assistive Technology

Finance and Economics

Prizes for Competitors

The top competitors in each category will be chosen by our professional judges to have a chance at one of our four main prizes. The judges will then decide among themselves the order of the the top four teams and that will decide what order the teams get to pick their prizes in.
