Solving problems in the community, one line at a time!

StanHacks aims to create solutions to everyday problems found in our communities. We want to encourage programmers of all levels to build software that can solve those problems.

View full rules


Must be a Student at a 2-year or 4-year University. This can be CSU Stan, UC Merced, MJC, Merced College, or any other college/junior college in California. (Out-of-state Colleges will be determined on a case-by-case basis)

All skill levels and majors are welcome


What you build with is your choice, as long as it solves an issue in a City, County, or the State of California. Out-of-state issues will only qualify if they may help California citizens. 

Submit all projects here on Devpost.

Registration is on our Stanhacks website.
