"Everyone at PreHacks was so incredibly supportive and helpful to me, especially considering I was a beginner who had no clue what to do at hackathons and what they were. I learned so much and I can't thank you enough for that!"

"I really enjoyed the PreHacks as it familiarized me to the environment of the Hackathon. Because I attended, I feel more motivated to learn to code on my own time and come back next year with better skills."
