Frequently Asked Questions

How does MLH Hackcon Digital work?

MLH Hackcon Digital is a series of short talks from global Community Leaders, small discussion groups, and The State of the League Keynote. It takes place as two separate events occurring at different points in the weekend so everyone can attend.

Wait, explain the two day thing again?

Because Hackcon Digital is a global conference, having it one time doesn’t work for everyone in every timezone, for that reason we chose to make Hackcon take place in two sessions. While there will be different participants and different discussions, you don’t need to attend both to get the experience, as many of the themes will be the same.

How will the conference take place?

We’ll be hosting the conference on Zoom. You can join online. For those who don’t have an internet connection capable of supporting Zoom, Zoom supports international dialing and we’ll be sharing slides in advance of the conference for those participants.

How much does MLH Hackcon cost?

MLH Hackcon Digital Tickets are free! In order to reduce barriers to the hacker community Hackcon Digital is a free event, all you need to do to attend is register.

We want to make sure that MLH Hackcon creates a safe and welcoming environment for attendees, speakers and sponsors. For this reason all participants are expected to follow the MLH Code of Conduct throughout the duration of the conference.
