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 8 am to finish. All final submissions must be made here, on ChallengePost, before the end of hacking. Videos are optional.
