Cipher presents Bonfire '17!
A hackathon is an event where coders and creators come together and use technology and code to turn dreams into realities.
Bonfire is a 24 hour hackathon on August 11-12 where students from all over the GTA come to learn, build, and have a good time together.
With free food, free swag, free workshops, and amazing prizes, you surely won't want to miss out on this!
If you have never coded before, this event is for you! We're offering the option to add a hand-picked mentor to your team -- someone who has experience with hackathons and coding. You'll work with them to create something amazing.
If you are a seasoned veteran, Local Hack Day is perfect for you! Make a dope project, share your experiences with others, win prizes and more.
Teams are limited to four members. If you request a mentor, they count as one of those four slots.
TL;DR: 24 hours. Free food. Coding. Creation. Prizes.
