HackDartmouth II is the second iteration of Dartmouth's premier hackathon. Hundreds of students from across the country will be converging in Hanover, New Hampshire to bring ideas to life in 24 hours.

Our first HackDartmouth event in spring 2015 was a blast. In fact, we had such a great time with all you hackers that we just had to throw another one. Thus, we present to you: HackDartmouth II!

This time, we're getting bigger, badder, and rad-er. We're bringing hundreds of students from across the country together with our sponsors to hack awesome projects and ideas to life over 24 hours. There will be plenty of amazing people, great prizes, and memorable times to be had, so mark your calendars for the weekend of October 3-4, 2015. In the meanwhile, check out some of the projects from our spring hackathon and dust off those ideas that have been sitting around all summer!
