Dear Hacker,

Shipping a technical project that you’re proud of is among the most validating and rewarding things you can do as a young person. College is the best time in our lives to do it—but actually doing it is soooooooooo hard. You have to find something you’d enjoy building, feels unique, and allows you to learn new things, but not too many new things, otherwise you’ll give up. Then, you have to find the time and motivation to actually build the thing—all while being pulled in every direction by academic and social oligations.

It’s no surprise most students simply don’t bother, & graduate never having made something they’re proud of.

Purdue Hackers is a student organization (AKA magical universe) full of radically kind, inclusive, and weirdo creative people who learn new things & ship projects together.

Many of us grew up never having found our people until we were united by our shared love for making things. Via our community, workshops, and Hack Nights, we want to create an environment where you can find your people too, and make magic with them. ✨

If you go to Purdue—whether you've never written code before, or are highly technical, whether you're an art major or a CS major—we invite you to join our universe.


See you soon,

💛⚡️ The Purdue Hackers community


Community

Find Your People 🌈

The heart & soul of Purdue Hackers is our community on Discord with 1000+ people. Share what you've made in #ship, chat about rainbows in #lounge, share your music musings in #music, ask for technical help in #code—wherever you look, you'll find weird, kind, radically inclusive, and really cool people. It's also where we announce upcoming events.

Enter a world of magic, find people who push you to be your best self, and make awesome things together.

made a silly link extender, which puts a ton of loremipsum text as the new link to a webpage

Programming Languages Workshop

Thu Dec 01 2022

We helped ~15 hackers learn how interpreters work and add a feature to a small language! Writing a programming language may seem intimidating, but there's nothing about it that can't be understood.

Workshops are our flagship events, happening every two weeks on average. A typical workshop lasts one hour, and is divided into two sections: 30-40 minutes for coding together, and 20-30 minutes for the "hacking" section, where hackers are challenged to take it further on their own.

Hack Night

Window

The Night is Nigh 🌙

Have you ever felt burdened by the weight of your ever-increasing responsibilities? Do you want to escape from reality, to a plane of existence far away from the endless monotony of daily life? Well, you can't. But you know what you can do? Come to Hack Night! 🌙

Hack Night is uninterrupted time to work on personal projects—anything from a little hack that you ship by the end of the night, to part of a larger project. We run Sessions throughout to help you get started. It's like a mini-hackathon every week. 💫 💻

Join us every Friday at 8pm in WALC 2124.
