About this event
Over the years we’ve seen teams of coders, designers and entrepreneurs from around the world become Whole Developers, watched as their Thoughts Become Things, and proved that Anyone Can Code. We’ve seen the code commit moment over and over again. The “oh sh*t I hope this works” moment. The moment where you know your hopes and dreams of winning that prize, that spot in the accelerator, that idea validation, are all on the line.
So, for our 10th Global Hackathon Series, we’re asking you to Commit To Your Code, and in turn commit to your project, a global ecosystem, yourself, your team, and your future. #AH10 is here.

We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (read: definitely) stick by these:
We all start coding at the same time. This is done to keep things fair. No one is allowed to come in and build on top of previous projects. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.
2. Code Review
Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.
3. Ownership and IP
Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.
4. Team Size
No more than five people.
Each hackathon has its individual hackathon.io page where projects will be submitted. Instructions will arrive in your inbox during the hackathon, and will be gone over during the event.
6. DEMO your Hack
You must demo your hack in order to present. No slide-decks or Powerpoints will be allowed. Two minute presentation and one minute Q&A from Judges.
Be cool to your fellow hackers! Check out the Code of Conduct if you need help knowing what that means 😉
