RevolutionUC is a student hackathon in which we invite students from across the midwest to partake in a weekend of code, community, and self-improvement. You don't have to attend the University of Cincinnati and you don't have to be a computer science major or engineering student. We're looking for people who share our passion to do awesome things with technology.
Projects are one of the key elements in any hackathon. At RevolutionUC, you have 24 hours to create something awesome from start to finish with your team. We’ve seen awesome mobile apps, web applications, and hardware hacks in the past and we’re excited to see what will be made this spring.
Learning is essential to a hackathon. Whether you’re a veteran hacker or a first-timer, we’re excited for you to learn something new! We’ll have exciting tech talks throughout the event and we encourage all our attendees to learn something
New to the hackathon scene? Awesome! We’re excited to have you. We’re more than willing to help you get you started with your first hack! With our team of mentors, assembled from our organizer team and software engineers from our sponsors, we’ll help get you started and get you past the bugs and bumps.
Hackathons are more than just a competition or showcase of technical skill. At RevolutionUC, we strive to create an all-inclusive community that acts as an outlet in which we can join our peers and share our passion for all the incredible things that can be done through programming. We’re excited to share this ethos with all of our attendees and come together to grow the hacker community here in Cincinnati.

We will have a space near our hacking area set aside for attendees that want to sleep. We'll be buying large amounts of Red Bull and other caffeinated drinks so hopefully you won't have to.
We will be looking at the potential for travel reimbursements on a case-by-case basis. We'd like to see a travel itinerary with where you're coming from, your vehicle's mileage to the gallon, and how many hackers you're driving with and from there we will make a decision whether or not we can provide reimbursement for travel. Email us this information and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible. We encourage all of our out-of-town hackers to look into carpooling from your area!
We will have organizers and volunteers present, so don't be shy and ask away! Feel free to tweet at us at @Revolution_UC with the hashtag #AskRevUC or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
