CYHacks - learn or compete

CYHacks is a 12 hour event that is held at Central York High School. (Generally, this type of event is called a Hackathon.) During the event, participants must complete a program, video, website, etc. that meets a specified criteria for a certain category.

Seminars will be offered during the event that anyone can attend to gather more information on these topics, as well as potentially explore more and different concentrations within Computer Science, rather than just programming.

Participants do not have to compete in the competition to participate in the event. They are more than welcome to come and use self paced resources, consult with our volunteers, and/or attend our seminars in order to learn more about Computer Science. Planned seminars include:  3D Printing, Audio, Breadboarding, Video Production. Event schedules to be announced.

Participants may work on the equipment at the school or bring your own laptop or iPad.  The Hub has Apple iMacs (MacOS El Capitan) and Mac Minis (MacOS Sierra).
