Nowadays Internet of Things (IoT) has become more and more popular with the rise of smart-home devices and Autonomous vehicles, and there are so much more possibilities awaiting. If you are interested in learning and exploring IoT, here's a great event to get your hands on.  

As the first student-run IoT hackathon in the west coast, Hack IoT is a 24-hour hackathon focusing primarily on IoT and the integration of IoT with other technologies.

We provide our hackers with tools and equipment free of charge, as well as great workshops. Not only will these hackers code, but also they will create tangible products from scratch in one weekend.
