AlphaHacks is Target Alpha’s annual hackathon that gives hackers everywhere a chance to show off their skills and win amazing prizes in fields ranging from business to healthcare and medicine.
The two tracks that we'll be having this year are the Proposal Track and Development Track. For the development track, a product must be built with code, while for the proposal track, only wireframes and a pitch video are required.
We’ve got an amazing list of sponsors and prizes that we’re pumped to share with you. We’re completely virtual this year, but nearly everything from a traditional hackathon will be present at AlphaHacks!
All projects are due at 9:00 AM EST Sunday, June 13th, 2021.
Your Devpost submission must have the following:
A video (5 minutes max) that showcases your application
A link to your GitHub repo (must be public) OR a link to your Google Slides PowerPoint (Make sure that its viewable by us) OR a PPTX powerpoint file
A complete Devpost description
Contact us if you have any questions!
