The Seven Hackathon Rules

All ages, genders, and skill levels are welcome. Come solo or in a team of up to five; Spend the weekend learning new skills, meeting the top talent in tech development and tech sponsors, all while building your relationships with a valuable network of individuals. Networking and innovation takes energy, so we also have plenty of food and fuel to help everyone perform at high level.

Some solid rules to stick to:

  1. Fresh Code – We all start coding at the same time. It’s a good idea 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 double check that all code used is in fact fresh.

  3. Ownership and IP – You have ownership of the IP and whatever you create.

  4. Team Size – 5 is the max.

  5. Submissions – Each hackathon has its individual link where projects need to be submitted by the designated time. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that.

  6. Demos – You’ll have 2 minutes to to showcase the how the project functions and talk through your idea, and 1 minute for Q&A from judges.

  7. Always treat your fellow hackers with respect! Check out our Code of Conduct.
