The Metaverse at our veterans hackathon is a space where you can let your creativity run wild and collaborate with people from all over the globe.
We find this method helps participants connect in ways they never thought possible. You might work on a project that brings new colleagues and friends, casually talk with someone from another country, or even conduct user research directly with a Medal of Honor Keynote Speaker.

Beginner friendly


This virtual hackathon is a great place to meet new friends, especially if you're the type of person who likes to talk about  design, engineering, or pretty much any other kind of Tech. (And let's face it, if you're reading this, you probably are.) You'll have a great time.

Get inspired by our Historical events.

Our speakers will get all your gears turning.

Learn from the

best speakers.

We have a proud history of bringing speakers who are not only at the top of their industry but also highly talented. In previous events, we've had a Medal of Honor recipient and Co-Founders of Twitch join us. You won't be disappointed.

We've got the answers to your questions

How will I get paired up?

We will help pair you up every week leading up to the event. More details in our Slack.

What will happen at the live workshops?

Workshops allow you to see how pros work in real time, and you can learn from their successes and failures. The hackathon also provides an opportunity to meet others and discuss the latest trends in Tech. If you're looking to improve your skills and network with others, our hackathon is the perfect place to start.

How does the virtual attendance work?

We hold our hackathons over for a fully immersive experience in the metaverse. There's nothing to download and the platform works best on Google Chrome. There will be private audio zones and you will be able to share your screen as well.

Framevr is an immersive 3D space where you can work together with other developers in the same room to create rich experiences, or just hang out and chat.

What's the time commitment? Put out as much as you can to help your team.

What are the networking opportunities?

When you join us for this event, you'll be able to meet veterans from all over the place. Each one of us brings a unique perspective to the table and you'll be able to collab with one another during our networking breakout sessions.

We know that finding opportunities in tech can be hard, so it's important that we take advantage of every chance we get to connect with other pros who are going through the same thing. We're looking forward to seeing you there!

Powered by a talented community of veterans.

Our community has been running hackathons for over four years, and we love everything about design and engineering.
