About CodeFest Competition

Every year across the country, programmers, project managers, graphic designers, and other within the software development industry come together to participate in hackathons.  These are weekend getaways for the technically minded and UWF is proud to be hosting this event.  This weekend-long event invites students from around the region to come together and work with professional mentors to develop a product.  That's 36 hours from an idea to a demo!  This is a great way for students to learn and network with other students, professors, and community leaders.

THEME > SURVIVING IN THE WORLD AROUND YOU

While projects must be focused on a central theme, there is no limit on the technologies that can be used to create the product. We welcome any ideas that correspond with the theme. 

The idea behind this year's theme is to foster ideas that enable people to better interact and live within their environment. This includes better healthcare, being more secure, and having a better understanding of the world and society. The main areas of primary interest include: 

  • Healthcare
  • Security
  • Education in STEM, Fine Arts, and personal well-being

As long as your idea fits within the theme then feel free to try new and interesting ideas! This is an event for anything your mind can think of!

IMAGINATION HAS NO LIMITS!


COST PER PERSON IS $10
