What is ChaosHacks?

ChaosHacks is this year’s iteration of the Software Systems Student Society's annual hackathon, SystemsHacks. It is a 12-hour, beginner-oriented hackathon that takes place at SFU’s Surrey campus and has been organized annually since 2017. We aim to create a welcoming environment for new hackers to make new connections and learn something new. Each year, SystemsHacks takes on a new theme, and for 2024 it’s ChaosHacks!

Past Hackathons

2023 - RootHacks

The name “RootHacks” reflects a broadly plant-based theme, and we hope to inspire participants to consider how their personal roots can offer them a unique perspective when building their project.

2022 - Quackathon

Create a project broadly duck-based that'll make the judges quack up! Create a duck mascot, identify ducks with AI, and more; you're only limited by your imagination! Think up new and innovative ways to insert a duck wherever into your project!
