Event Description

Spend a week hacking with the MLH community at Global Hack Week: Game Week! Global Hack Week takes place throughout the year to give you a chance to complete technical challenges, network with the community, enjoy fun live sessions, build technical projects, and make new memories.

Livestreams and Mini Events

Throughout GHW, we'll have daily workshops live-streamed on our Twitch to give you the chance to pick up new skills and build something together with the community. In between workshops, we'll run mini-events in the MLH Community Discord for you to join in and meet friends as you take a break from hacking.

Challenges and Points

At GHW Games Week we will have plenty of challenges to keep you busy. Challenges will range from social challenges urging you to connect with other members of the community, technical challenges that will expand your coding skills, and design challenges to refine your skills as a creator and artist. Some of these challenges will be completed live on our Twitch stream, so you can follow along and complete them with the community. We cannot wait to see all that you learn, build, and share.

Earn experience points for yourself by completing our challenges throughout GHW. Challenges aren’t the only way to earn points. You can also receive a point each time you check in for a live session, so the more you attend, the more points you’ll rack up. They can be as simple as posting on your social media or as advanced as building a project and creating a full demo video for it. We’ll leave it to you to choose which challenges you want to take on. Feel free to work collaboratively with others on these.
