1.  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.

  2.  Code Review

    Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. Commiting code to github.com will earn you some extra points!

  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

    Teams of up to 5 people are allowed. You can also add 1 cyborg, Furby, drone, Sphero, or a designer. So 5 + 1 designer, 6 members.

  5. Submissions

    Each team has its individual devpost.com page, where projects should be submitted to. Submission time will normally stay open until 1pm Saturday, 21 may, unless stated otherwise.

  6. DEMO your Hack for the jury

    You must demo your hack to the jury when they arrive to your desk. No slide-decks or power-points will be allowed, just show what you are working on. Don’t be scared if you didn’t finish… it’s okay. The best projects that make the shortlist will get another round of interviews from the jury and a LIVE DEMO ON STAGE!

  7. Have fun!

    It’s a hackathon! Use whatever languages or hacks you have in your arsenal. Show us hardware. Show us new concepts. Show us anything you’d like.
