24 hour hackathon to create cool projects, learn from remote workshops, and have a great time!

MacroHacks is a 24 hour virtual hackathon managed and sponsored by MacroTech Solutions Inc. Hackers have a day to build any software/hardware project from the ground up with absolutely no restrictions and at the end, we will be awarding prizes to the winners. We will also have a wide range of workshops with skilled and experienced mentors to teach skills like Machine Learning, Python, Appwrite implementation in JavaScript, and many others. Hackers will have full access to mentors that can help them debug issues or develop their code to enable everyone to create awesome projects regardless of skill levels. We are dedicated to making MacroHacks a fun event for all hackers, so if you want the opportunity to learn new programming skills, build great projects, and compete for prizes, join us on June 27-28!
