Bring your Student ID for check in, along with your laptop and charger for hacking. You can bring a sleeping bag and pillow if you want to sleep, as well as any hardware that will help your project. Don't be afraid to represent your school!

Do you provide hardware?

If you are planning to work on a hardware hack, feel free to bring anything you think you'll need. We will be featuring the MLH Hardware Lab at our event!

Can I start working on my hack before HackRiddle?

Unfortunately, all work on your hacks must be done during the 24 hour event. Projects that have been worked on before the start of the event won't be allowed to enter for judging.

Is there a Code of Conduct?
