GuildS

One of the best parts of our community is that it allows people to meet and make connections with others, regardless of where you live. Form a guild of hackers and fight for a spot on the leaderboard. Who wouldn’t want bragging rights for having one of the most active guilds within the LHD: Share and the MLH community? 

There’s strength in numbers, so ade marketig templates. Remember, sharing is caring - so use these to share the excitement with your local community, friends, and classmates! The more members your guild has, the more points you’ll earn and the faster you’ll climb your way up the leaderboard.

What is Local Hack Day?

Local Hack Day: Learn is a global week-long conference that you can share with your community. You can pick up the new skills you need by participating in workshops and talks with a community around the world. Over the course of 12 hours, attendees will experience a series of workshops where they’ll learn skills such as publishing their first website using AWS, sending their first SMS with Twilio, and building their first game in Unity. This is an event for all skill levels, from beginners to the most veteran developers. Workshop attendees will learn skills that they can apply in their projects, schoolwork, job, and beyond.
