Absolutely not! It doesn’t matter if you are a designer, a writer, or a chemistry major. There is a place for you here. There will be a team formation session at the beginning of the event to help form teams.
A hackathon is an event where motivated people come together and use technology and creativity to build something amazing. Any designers, writers, computer scientists or anyone interested in hackathons are welcome to attend!
Don't have a team? We got you covered. We will have time before hacking begins for hackers to get together and form teams. You can have a maximum of 4 members on your team.
Yes, lots! We will provide three meals a day as well as snacks, drinks, and caffeine.
You can NOT use anything that you have started prior to the event. You can think of ideas for your project, but you need to start from scratch when you arrive.
