What is Training Day?






"HackingEDU empowers future change-makers to revolutionize the World."

At HackingEDU, we are always looking for unique ways to give back to the student community.

Co-hosted with IBM, this event will feature hands-on Workshops lead by veteran developers geared towards both Beginner and Advanced coders in: Web Development, iOS, Android, Machine Learning, Hardware Hacks & IBM Technologies

How do you learn programming? A CS class in college, online courses, or browsing around Stack Overflow? Learning how to code can be very difficult and frustrating, especially if you are doing it yourself. HackingEDU Training Day aims to revolutionize this process by providing access to workshops, mentors and a community of hackers who can help students level up their skills, and build their first projects.


We are always looking for talented Mentors & passionate Volunteers to help us have kick-ass events!
