7th–8th September 2019

Participate in our beginner-friendly hackathon made by Aggies for Aggies!

Sign up for the latest updates!


HowdyHack is Texas A&M’s 24-hour, software-oriented, Aggie-only hackathon. Hackers at HowdyHack will brainstorm, build, and break, before they’ll finally bring a product to a panel of judges for evaluation and hopefully win some cool prizes.


Beyond hacking, HowdyHack is about connecting creative and talented Aggie hackers with each other. We want to give hackers the opportunity to show off their capabilities to an audience who will listen and get to know fellow hackers with the same Aggie pride! There will also be workshops and activities to help you learn new skills!


What is HowdyHack?

HowdyHack is Texas A&M’s software-oriented Aggie-only hackathon. Originally created by a group of ambitious, hacker-loving students from Aggie Coding Club, TAMUhack has now joined efforts into making this hackathon a bigger and better iteration for this year and many more to come!

Is there a theme for HowdyHack?

Yes! This year, the theme is For Aggies, By Aggies. This is an opportunity for you to come up with the coolest, most technologically-savvy hacks to benefit the university and Aggies!

Will there be companies at the hackathon, like TAMUhack?

While there will not be companies present at the hackathon, we will have all kinds of workshops throughout the entire event and even the week before to help you get ready. We got your back!

I'm not from A&M, can I still attend?

Unfortunately, HowdyHack is only open to students from Texas A&M - College Station. However, be on the lookout for TAMUhack, our inter-collegiate Spring hackathon!

I can't wait! When does registration open?

Shhh... it's a secret. But if you sign up on the mailing list, you'll find out sometime in August ;)
