Rules for our hackathons are pretty simple. Unless stated otherwise:
Fresh Code We all start coding at the same time. This is done to keep things fair. Please don’t come in and build on top of previous projects if you want to win. It’s cool to wok on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but try to keep things within just limits.
Code Review Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning.
Ownership and IP Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.
Team Size Teams of up to 5 humans are allowed. You can also add 1 cyborg, Furby, drone, or Sphero.
Submissions Each hackathon has it’s individual hackathon.io page, which projects should be submitted on. Submission time is normally 1pm Sunday unless stated otherwise.
