1. Fresh Code - We all start coding at the same time. This is done to keep things fair. Please don’t
come in and build on top of previous projects if you want to win. It’s cool to wok on designs
beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone,
but try to keep things within just limits.
2. Code Review - Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the
event or immediately before winning.
3. Ownership and IP - Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our hackathon and
are free to do with it as they wish.
4. Team Size - Teams of up to 2-4 humans are allowed.
5. DEMO your Hack - You must demo your hack in order to present. No slide-decks or power-
points will be allowed. Don’t be scared if you didn’t finish… it is okay long as you tried your best.
6. Have fun - It’s a hackathon! Use whatever languages or hacks you have in your arsenal.
