Don’t just surf the web, build it

While Source focuses on the web, our goal is to give you the power and knowledge to work on any type of software, from data processing to mobile apps. Through project showcases, hackathons, and workshops, we hope to show you how fun, relevant, and powerful programming can be.
Join our community
Through collaborative projects, group dinners, hikes, pregames, and more you’ll become part of HackCville’s tight-knit community. We serve all UVA students (grad/undergrad) and Charlottesville community members 18+.

Skills courses are high commitment. In our application process we look for extremely committed, reliable students who are hungry for an intensive challenge. We want people who intend on becoming active, contributing members of the HackCville community.
