What is Global Hack Week: Share 2022?

Global Hack Week: Share (formely known as Local Hack Day: Share) is your opportunity to spend a week focused celebrating all you've accomplished in the 2022 Hackathon Season. Dust off projects you've built throughout the season, prepare to build some new ones, and most importantly, get ready to share what you've learned!

You are in for an adventure featuring workshops, fun mini-events, challenges, panels, and more. These will help you to earn experience points no matter what level of hacking you are at, whether it’s writing your first lines of code or creating a multi-faceted project.

We'll have challenges, live technical sessions with MLHers, mini-events galore, and some cool content from our partners! Here’s a sneak peek:

  • Beginner-friendly workshops

  • Challenges for all difficulty levels and all topics such as design, social, technical, entrepreneurial

  • Hacker-run guilds

  • Talks from friends of MLH and our partners

  • Live sessions run by MLHers

  • And maybe an appearance from Totally Not Ryan (TNR)

Can I get swag at this event?

Yes, of course! GHW: Share will feature some amazing 2022 Hackathon Season swag…you’ll have to participate to find out exactly what you’re getting! 

What is a Guild? How can I be a part of it?

One of the best parts of our community is that it allows people to meet and make connections with others, regardless of where you live. guilds are smaller communities within Major League Hacking. Whether you come in with a guild or not, you won’t be hacking alone.
