FAQ What is the challenge?


What ticket should I get?

We want anyone interested to come. Choose what type of person you are based on the tickets listed. If you aren't any one of them, please choose the most relevant one. This just gives us an idea on who we can expect to come.

This is my first hackathon, can I participate?

Absolutely! Although it's nice if you have some prior experience we do not require any experience to attend the hackathon. We want everyone and anyone interested to attend. Bring your friends as well!

Do I need a team to attend?

No, you do not need a team and don't need to know anyone! We will have plenty of time to meet people and form teams before the hackathon officially begins.
