Code Review: Winning teams may be subject to a code review, usually following the event or after demos.

Team Size: Teams of up to 5 humans are allowed.

Submissions: Projects must be submitted to Hackathon.io.

DEMO your hack: You must demo your hack in order to present. No slide decks or powerpoints will be allowed. Don’t be scared if you didn’t finish… it’s okay long as you tried your best. You will have two minutes for demos, and one minute for judges' Q&A.


Fresh Code: All code developed as part of the FinAppsParty Hackathon must be FRESH–that’s how we keep these things fair. Before the start of the FinAppsParty Hackathon , developers can create wireframes, designs and user flows. They can also come with hardware. But to keep things fair, all code must be written onsite at the FinAppsParty Hackathon . Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries you’d like.

Who Owns the IP? Participants will own the rights to their work; however, we kindly ask that all code be submitted to a Open Source Repo. Partnering companies may have their own terms and conditions for proprietary technology or content.

Participation Agreement: Developers, designers and entrepreneurs are required to sign this agreement in advance of or upon arrival at the FinAppsParty Hackathon.
