Event FAQs

A hackathon is not just about the coding, that's just a small part. Learning new things, regardless of experience, is the major key. Networking and seeing awesome hackers in action will expose you to a huge amount of knowledge for your own projects. What's more, we have an awesome lineup of industry experts and mentors to help you.

Nothing. Rien. Nada. Nichts. Nimic. Niekas. You got the idea.

Any undergraduate student who is over 18, regardless of your experience, education, background or anything else, as long as you are passionate about learning, building and having fun.

* People who graduated up to 12 months ago can also attend.

Laptop. Chargers. Probably a sleeping bag. We will provide food and drinks to keep you going, some toiletries, and a designated sleeping area.

Of course! For those who don't have any ideas yet, we will have a brainstorming session to get your creative juices flowing.

Again, of course! For those who don't have a team we have a workshop to get you into a team that will compliment you and your skills.
