Overview

HackIR is an annual hackathon hosted at Iroquois Ridge High School that aims to promote STEM throughout Oakville. It is a 12-hour event that includes numerous workshops for programmers to learn more about coding in order to assist them in creating a project. It is less focused on the competition than the ability to spread knowledge of the vital 21st-century skill: programming.

HackIR has been apart of the Major League Hacking Local Hack Day for two years and this year is no exception. Local Hack Day is a global hackathon uniting thousands of students across the world. Participants across 100+ distributed campuses are able to connect with their local communities and other hackers through digital workshops, social media, and a global live stream. HackIR 2018 will take place on December 1 from 9 am to 9 pm.
