As technology continues evolving, the Order of the Arrow is able to deliver our program in revolutionary ways. The past few years have proven to be no exception, showcased by the integration of a mobile application at our national conference, vast improvements to our website and the inaugural Order of the Arrow Hackathon held in October 2017. Innovation doesn’t end there!
On June 26-30, 2019, the Order of the Arrow will be hosting the first ever full-length OA Hackathon at the University of Illinois on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and All Arrowmen are invited to attend, technology experience not required. By working with a team of other Arrowmen, you will learn new skills while tackling organizational technology challenges at the event.
