What is Code.Jam()?

CodeJam is the yearly hackathon run by the McGill Electrical, Computer, and Software Student Society in our very own Trottier Engineering Building. We provide an engaging environment for students to learn and have fun over a weekend of coding!

  • 01: Code

    Build an awesome project with your team over the course of the weekend (and get feedback and mentoring throughout).

  • 02: Network

    Meet like-minded hackers and connect with companies looking to hire their next batch of talented developers.

  • 03: Swag

    Swag will be provided for *all participants in Montreal! Including a shirt from both Code.Jam(2020) and this edition! *While supplies last

  • 04: Prizes

    $8000 in cash prizes are up for grabs! More details about the prize breakdown to be determined.

  • 01: How many people can be in a team?

    Each team can have between 1 and 4 members. If you don't have a team but want to be part of one, you can still sign up as a free agent, and we'll make accommodations at the start of the event to help you find a group to work with

  • 02: Who is eligible to participate?

    Anyone attending any Canadian post-secondary institution can attend!

  • 03: Can I iterate on a past project as my submission?

    No. Participants should be creating something from scratch once the hacking begins so we can have an even playing field for everyone!

  • Have any questions not listed here?

    Say hi at codejam@mcgilleus.ca or leave us a message at either our Facebook or Instagram page. We'll try to answer all queries as soon as possible! 🚀
