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!
