Calling all the APAC Hackers!
Dive into the world of hackathons with DeepDiveHacks. Get ready to build hacks inspired by the sea.
We will be running a fun, activity-filled, open-themed digital hackathon. Feel free to hack on whatever you'd like or make it sea-themed for the fun of it. These events are open to all skill levels, from beginners to the most veteran developers. While we'd love to have you build something on the theme, our themes are only here for inspiration. Please build whatever you'd like and focus on having fun!
If you're from the NA/EU region, we'd love for you to join another one of our amazing hackathons which is more time-friendly for your region: Hack or Treat 2
