CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - A hackathon is returning to Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.

The "HackSIreturns" will be held Nov. 4-5 at the Dunn-Richmond Economic Development Center. More than 120 people participated in last year's event. Nearly 200 have signed up already for this year.

SIU says some previous winners even had no prior experience.

Winners will receive prizes.
