A hackathon for first time hackers - build something, anything.

Trojanhacks: My First Hackathon is a 24 hour event for USC students to create something awesome. Many students have never been to a hackathon and feel like they don't have enough experience or skills to contribute to their team. We want to change this mentality. USC ACM wants to show you that you can go from little to no experience to making something you're proud of - you just need to put your mind to it.

There will be free food, company swag, and lots of cool people. Come join us for the weekend and see what you're capable of! You do not need to form a team ahead of time!

Trojanhacks welcomes all USC students to participate! Applications are now open to be a hacker at http://bit.ly/TrojanHacksReg

Join us for our workshop series prior to the event featuring:
- My First JavaScript
- My First Android
- My First iOS
- My First Arduino
- My First AI
