About

Invent:YU Israel is a 24 hour hackathon where students team up to turn their ideas into tangible products. Build anything from apps and websites to robots and drones to win prizes.

Invent:YU Israel is Yeshiva University's 3rd annual hackathon. The hackathon is an initiative of the YU Tamid Group, YU Israel, YU Computer Science, and YU Hackers clubs.

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is best described as an "invention marathon". Anyone with an interest in technology attends to learn, build & share their creations over a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. You don’t have to be a programmer and you certainly don’t have to be majoring in CS.

Our Mission

Israel is one of the leading countries in the world when it comes to the high-tech industry. We want to show everyone the many different faces of such a great country and specifically how it and we can make the world a better place through community and technology.

Frequently asked questions

Great question! A hackathon is best described as an "invention marathon." People with an interest in technology come together to learn, build, and share their creations over a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. At this year's hackathon you can learn how to build apps from experienced mentors, eat good food, and win prizes while having an awesome time over 24 hours.
Anyone who enjoys creating, wants to learn how to build things, and/or be more involved with tech in Israel is invited. You don’t have to be a programmer and you certainly don’t have to be majoring in Computer Science. All majors and backgrounds are welcome.

Not a problem! It’s entirely irrelevant what your experience is going into a hackathon, it’s more about your interest in technology. We are passionate about making our hackathon very welcoming and beginner-friendly. If you’re wanting to learn how to code outside of a hackathon, there’s a fantastic blog post that you should read. After, you should check out the following: Treehouse, Codecademy and the Major League Hacking blog to get started.
That’s normal. Most people don’t have an idea before they get to the event. But once you start talking to other people, you might come up with something. You can also work with somebody else on their idea if you like it. And there will be prizes at the event which might help give you some ideas. Don’t worry about it, you’ll find something to work on.
Absolutely! All of your meals will be free and there’ll be plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you energized. If you’ve got specific dietary requirements, you should let us know and we’ll be more than happy to make arrangements.
