AUHack is Denmarks largest hackathon. From March 31st to April 2nd, we give you the opportunity to come create, innovate and hack on crazy ideas.

AUHack is Denmark's largest hackathon. Over a 36-hour period from March 31st to April 2nd, students interested in IT development and IT design will meet and collaborate intensively over a weekend to create prototypes and concepts. Your goal is not to create finished products, but to come up with ideas, play with new technology and make new hacks. It is an opportunity to share your ideas with different people, build cool stuff, learn from our mentors and just have fun. Our goal is to bring students from different fields of study and universities together and set a framework, where you can carry out your projects and ideas. Students for all study programs are welcome, and everybody is there to help each other and have fun!
