SASEHack is an annual project-based hackathon.

This year's SASEhack is a team based project focused on engineering solutions.  Your team will be asked to define a project or process and make improvements based on criteria that will be identified at the beginning of the hack.  Computer programming skills are not required for a solution. Teams will consist of 2 to 4 members.  Come sign up as a team or we will find you team members.  Please bring your laptop/tablet. Prizes totaling $1,750 will be awarded out and there will be cool items from Boeing for participants. SASEhack will start at 9pm Friday, Oct. 11th and end at 9am Saturday, Oct. 12; just in time to participate in the Career Fair.

NOTE: Once you've registered on the SASE National Conference website, make sure you also sign up in Devpost.
