Mississippi State University's 24 hour hackathon

Welcome to the first annual Major League Hacking (MLH) hackathon in Mississippi! The HackState Leadership Team and Mississippi State University are so excited that you’re hacking with us.

A hackathon is a sprint-like coding competition. Over the course of 24 hours, you and your team will design and build a new computer-oriented project, such as a web application, mobile application, or a hardware innovation. Near the end of the event, you will show your progress to judges and possibility win some neat prizes.
