All ages, genders, and skill levels are welcome. Come solo or in a team of up to five, and spend the weekend learning new skills, meeting your local tech community and tech sponsors, enjoying free food, and more.

Our attendees typically consist of developers looking to improve their skills or expand their horizons, students, designers of all skill-sets, and serious entrepreneurs that can add value to teams. Bring your ideas and let's go!


We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (read: definitely) stick by these:

1. Fresh Code - We all start coding at the same time. It's cool 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 ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

3. Ownership and IP - You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that.

4. Team Size - No more than five people.

5. Submissions - Each hackathon has its individual page 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 demo the functionality of your project and talk through your idea, and 1 minute for Q&A from judges.

7. Be cool to your fellow hackers! Check out our Code of Conduct.


How is the hackathon judged?

Projects will be judged based on the following criteria, with a total of 5 points per criteria:

● Fundability: How fundable is this idea? Is there potential for a sustainable business model?

● Execution: How well was the project executed and explained? Did it work?

● UI/UX: Beyond design, was the end-to-end user experience for the solution considered?

● Originality: How original, creative or unique is the idea?

● Scalability: How scalable is the solution? Will it make an impact?
