What is Global Hack Week: Share 2022?
Global Hack Week: Share (formely known as Local Hack Day: Share) is your opportunity to spend a week focused celebrating all you've accomplished in the 2022 Hackathon Season.

We'll have challenges, live technical sessions with MLHers, mini-events galore, and some cool content from our partners! Here’s a sneak peek:
Challenges for all difficulty levels and all topics such as design, social, technical, entrepreneurial
Talks from friends of MLH and our partners

What is a Guild? How can I be a part of it?
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. guilds are smaller communities within Major League Hacking. Whether you come in with a guild or not, you won’t be hacking alone.
