HappyHacks is a monthly hosted virtual hackathon catered towards young coders ranging from highschool to first year university. We are passionate in provoking interest and commitment in coding at a young age, therefore we offer our hackathons as opportunities for coders to express their skill and explore coding in a competitive yet fun manner. We hope our format of our hackathons as completely virtual combined with our emphasis on integrity allows for people all around the world to have a fair experience without certain teams having disadvantages due to their location. Our hackathon is targeted towards coders of all skill levels. For experienced coders, this is an opportunity to show off your skills and your accumulated knowledge. On the other hand, beginner coders get to explore their ideas and get judged fairly based on experience. Everyone is welcome!
