Because a hackathon is about more than the final presentation. We've seen too many teams win without building anything more than a landing page and a "business model". This goes against the spirit of what a hackathon is, which is raw technical creativity. We want developers of all technical levels to come out and learn something new, break something, maybe even set something on fire (please don't though). The teams that walk away with prizes are those who came out the other side with something working, impressive and a weekend they can be proud of.Purchase Tickets
No! Many teams will form on Saturday morning at the event. Hackathons are a fun way to make new friends in the industry. Working side-by-side to build something new is a powerful bonding experience.
No! Some teams do come with a project idea, ready to build. Many do not. Some participants will have a great project but need a team to help them build it. Hackathon organizers can offer direction if your team is struggling to choose.
No. Take breaks when you want. Sleep when you want. A lot of teams are so excited to complete their project that they work straight through the night. Other participants prefer to get some rest and take some time to sleep, either at the event or at home.
We welcome participants with any level of experience. Hackathons are a great opportunity to improve and learn new development skills.
There are a number of parking lots in the immediate area of Union Hall.

Better yet, take a bus, bike, or e-scooter! 😀
