Facebook Sydney Hackathon 2017

April 29 - 30 2017

Here at Facebook, we believe that every engineer possesses amazing ideas and creativity. Hackathons are a longstanding tradition at Facebook where our engineers stay up all night to create a working product or prototype from scratch. Remember- done is better than perfect.

Please note - all members of your team must register individually at fbsydhack17.splashthat.com for the opportunity to attend by April 7th at 9am UTC +10

Join Facebook in Sydney as we stay up all night hacking, learning and having a some fun! Start brainstorming ideas & forming teams (of up to 4 people). We'll supply the food, fun diversions, prizes, and some expert guidance in the form of our engineers. You bring your laptop, appetite, skills and ideas.

The winning team will get the chance to compete against teams from other Hackathons at the Hackathon Finals and be judged by our executives- held at Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, California in November!
