Who can participate?

Are you a student? Do you want make cool things? Great. Can't wait to meet you!

How big should my team be?

We suggest that participants work in teams of four. If you'd like to be on a team but can't find anyone to work with you, you can sign up as an individual and we'll find a team for you.

Should my project be hardware or software?

We'll accept either, and thanks to MLH, we'll have some hardware for you to play with!

Can I work on my project before the event?

No, we'd really like it if you started a new project for the hackathon. Take a blank canvas and paint a masterpiece!

What should I bring?

Bring your laptop, cell phone, chargers, sleeping bag, pillow, change of clothes (nerdy shirts are preferred), toiletries, and, of course, your creativity.

Anything I should leave at home?

Please don't bring firearms or other weapons, alcohol, illegal drugs, soldering or similar equipment, animals (no matter how adorable), and outside food. There will be lots of food, don't worry.
