CruzHacks 2024 Hackathon

January 19 - January 21  |  Stevenson Event Center


CruzHacks is the largest hackathon in Santa Cruz! Each year, hundreds of students are invited to develop solutions to real-world problems, pursue inclusion in tech, and kindle the spirit of innovation.

CruzHacks was founded in 2013 as Hack UCSC by Mark Adams, Brent Haddad, and Doug Erickson. In 2018, Hack UCSC was rebranded as CruzHacks, and became a student-led non-profit hackathon. Throughout the years, CruzHacks/Hack UCSC has sparked innovation and creativity from attendees and has even been the source of a few start-up companies.

CruzHacks 2024 is a three-day event where you can work with others on new software and/or hardware projects. You’ll be able to build your ideas, network, and show off your talent. There are hundreds of students, mentors, sponsors, and judges that can help push your vision forward. The event also includes workshops geared towards students of all levels to learn and improve their technical skills.  CruzHacks 2024 starts Friday night and ends Sunday afternoon. This year, it will take place on January 19 – 21 at Stevenson Event Center, UCSC.
