HackHarvard 2019: Connecting the Dots

Welcome to HackHarvard 2019! Join us for the fifth iteration of HackHarvard, a 36-hour hackathon hosted on Harvard University's historic campus. 

This year, our theme is connecting the dots. Let creativity and innovation blossom as you push the intersection between technology and society forward. Allow your vision to fly free and flourish as ideas bridge across fields and disciplines in ways you’ve never imagined. Today, technology is tightly intertwined with everything around us. At HackHarvard 2019, we want you to connect the dots, and we can’t wait to see how you do it.

As Steve Jobs once said: “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future… Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and that will make all the difference.”
