TotalityHacks is a collegiate hackathon without the limitations of a university. The advantages of this are countless, but as an attendee the biggest difference is focus. The participants will be experienced hackers from around the country. Instead of needing to try and cater to beginners from a host school, we're choosing to cater Totality only to the most committed and experienced hackers. Furthermore, our organizing team is composed of experts from around the nation who have participated in and organized multiple hackathons, and they will be working to make your time at Totality one to remember.
Totality will feature innovation across the board with the hacker experience. Workshops and tech talks will cater to advanced topics—no more struggling to find something more interesting than "Intro to Python." We'll be announcing exact workshop titles at a later date. We're also working to optimize the hiccups commonly seen in hackathons. Food distribution won't be in one place reducing lines. Check in will be fully automated through technology. Activities will be scattered to reduce lines. We're even going to innovate in category prizes: think category prizes along the lines of best hack without electricity in addition to the usual best hardware hack. To summarize, Totality is going to be the newest, most innovative hackathon you could experience.
Much of this innovation is possible due to the technology driving Totality. Stay tuned for updates as we open source this technology on our GitHub.
Totality will be hosted at the Brooklyn Expo Center in New York City, a perfect venue for an exciting new hackathon. New York provides an infinite playground for coding breaks, an amazing food scene, and most importantly our venue is easily accessible to the entire northeast by charter bus and/or train while also having three nearby airports for those flying in.
