What is the Fresh Code Rule?
All code developed as part of the Capital One Hackathon must be fresh. Before the start of the Capital One 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 Capital One Hackathon. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries.
