• There are no limits to the size of teams, but we find that teams of 3-5 people work better for hackathons. Also, only 5 people per team will qualify for prizes if they win.
  • Participants must sign up for the event online via Eventbrite Registration and the Official DEVPOST website in order to be eligible to participate in the event. All participants must sign all of the required media waivers in order to participate.
  • Participants may come and go as they like during the event. However, high school students must depart by 11:30pm Saturday night and may return at 6:00am Sunday morning.
  • All code must be created during the event. Use of open source libraries are allowed as long as the project is publicly available. Use of commercial software is also allowed.
  • If the solution is software-based code, then use of design mockups or wireframes is allowed during presentations/videos. However, judges prefer to see functional working software/apps and will judge accordingly.
  • The project must provide a link to the public source code in Github.
  • All source code must be submitted under a permissive open source license. A qualifying permissive open source license is one of the following: Apache 2.0, MIT, or BSD 3-Clause.
  • Use of open source libraries are allowed as long as the project is publicly available. Contact our team for Q&A support.
  • A short video is required for preliminary judging. While professional equipment and production elements are not required, teams do need a means to create the video (ex. A smartphone will do just fine)
  • Final presentations will be strictly limited to 5 minutes with an additional 2 minutes for questions from the judges.
  • The project’s source code must be publicly accessible via github for a week after the end of the event.
  • Participants must provide their own laptops, and mobile/tablet devices for use during the event.
  • Come on your own or create a team. We also want to encourage collaboration among attendees so if you find a team or person with a valuable asset to support your idea/concept, feel free to team up when you arrive.
  • External hard drives are permitted for the hacking event itself. If you want a power strip bring it!
