Yahoo! Hack U Programming Competition


NOTE: The programming competition begins at 5:00pm and runs for 24 hours. Winners are chosen immediately afterwards. winning team members will get iPads and will represent U-M at Yahoo's University Hack Showdown at Yahoo! headquarters in Sunnyvale.
Join Yahoo! web experts for learning, hacking and fun! Our University Hack Day competition is a day-long festival of coding, camaraderie, demos, awards, food, music and jollity (it's a real word, look it up). It's not about perfect code, just your creativity, a cool idea and a working prototype. You'll have access to tons of APIs and tools in the Yahoo! Developer Network (check out YQL, the YUI Library, Flickr and BOSS just to name a few).

No rules or limitations – just show up and hack for your opportunity to win cool prizes, a spot in the gallery, street cred and the chance to represent your school at the University Hack Showdown. This is your shot to develop something that will revolutionize the industry, make the world a better place or at least make the judges laugh (trust us, that goes a long way!). See you there!
