What You Can Do At Technica

Submit a project and win prizes

Submit your project for prize categories for a chance to win sweet rewards for you and/or your team provided by Technica and our sponsors! We have prizes for all kinds of hacks for you and/or your team to win. You might even make some new friends while hacking away!

Learn new skills

Technica aims to be a learning experience for everyone by providing fun and informative workshops. Hackers have the option to attend workshops in order to learn more general tech skills, practice tech skills relevant to their hack, and learn about new career paths and opportunities that they may wish to pursue.

Network

Looking to network? Companies are welcome to have recruiters and recruiting materials at their booth at Technica, where they will be able to interact with hackers. There will be a Sponsorship Fair in which hackers are encouraged to visit open booths and network with recruiters, potentially gaining an invitation to apply for openings or even an internship or job offer.
