DiamondHacks '23 is on March 4-5 and is conducted with the mission of supporting women and non-binary students interested in developing software projects. However, we welcome all hackers that support this mission, regardless of gender or experience. DiamondHacks '23 is entirely virtual and will be hosted using Discord and Zoom.

Beginners are welcome, and will be supported with introductory workshops and guidance from fellow students. Additionally, sponsors will be available to mentor and network with students. Anyone who submits a project on DevPost will have the chance to win prizes!

Any team size is welcome, but a maximum of 4 prizes will be awarded to each winning team.

Please visit our website for more information about our schedule and logistics.


You are strongly encouraged to present a demo of what you have built. As you are judged on what you built, you'll only hurt yourself by not showing a demo.

You are encouraged to present what you have done even if your hack is broken or you weren’t able to finish. It's okay if you didn't finish your hack—that happens all the time! Completion is only one part of the judging criteria, so you might still do well. Also, demoing is not just about the competition. It's a chance to share with others what you learned and what you tried to build—that's what hacking's all about! In the case that you don't have anything to demo, you can give a presentation about what you tried and what you learned. Hearing what other people learned is interesting and inspiring for other attendees.
