HackSI 2022 - Canceled

The HackSI crew is deeply saddened to report that we will not be able to host an event this year. Due to on-going health issues, Dav can't fully participate in the management of the event nor would he be able to get all the things ready that would be needed to put on an awesome event.

We are very hopeful that we will be able to return next year for an awesome event!

HackSI 2021 - Canceled

The HackSI crew are saddened to report that HackSI 2021 has been canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. With the current restrictions in place and many of our sponsors businesses suffering we feel we can not safely hold an in-person event this year. We are currently considering a virtual version of HackSI, but nothing is set in stone yet. We will update you as soon as we know more. Apologies for the cancellation, the crew will miss seeing you all.

HackSI and making COVID-19 face shields

HackSI is currently raising money to make free face shields available to all healthcare workers in Southern Illinois. We are dedicating all of our lasers to cutting this protective gear. If you are in need of this free gear, please send us a Facebook Message or contact Dav's Garage and we will get them to you as soon as we possibly can.

In true HackSI fashion, we are also releasing all of the plans and materials for these shields so that others around the world can do the same thing.

HackSI 2020 is scheduled!!

HackSI 2020 will be held on 11/7 & 11/8 in 2020. We are currently raising sponsorships and funding to allow the event to continue.


If you would like to volunteer for the 2019 event, please register above but select the volunteer ticket instead of a normal ticket.
