RevolutionUC is a student hackathon in which we invite students from across the midwest to partake in a weekend of code, community, and self-improvement. You don't have to attend the University of Cincinnati and you don't have to be a computer science major or engineering student. We're looking for people who share our passion to do awesome things with technology. 

For our event schedule, check out our schedule here for the most up-to-date information! 


RevolutionUC is open to everyone currently enrolled in an accredited college (or similar program) and high school students.
