The 5CHackathon is the official hackathon of the Claremont Colleges. Instead of making hackathons a competitive experience, we make ours one that emphasizes learning and having fun. Teams begin working on their project on Friday night and have until Saturday morning at 8am to finish. All final submissions must be made here, on ChallengePost, before the end of hacking. Videos are optional.
