FAQ

Who can participate in the hackathon?

The Hackathon is open to everyone, but pre-registration is required. You must register on both the Eventbrite registration page AND Devpost event page. You can be a developer, designer, biz dev person, idea person, or anything in between.

What types of projects can hackathon teams work on?

Hackathon teams can work on any type of project (web apps, mobile apps, wearable solutions, data visualizations, algorithms, even video presentations or visual mock-ups) however all of the hackathon prizes are sponsored prizes for teams that best utilize sponsor technology. Most of these sponsor technologies are only relevant for web and mobile applications, and 95%+ of teams will end up building web and mobile applications.

How do I form a hackathon team?

You can form a hackathon team before the hackathon (either with friends/co-workers or you can find team members on Devpost.com).

Who owns the technology that hackathon teams produce?

The teams that work on the projects own the project technologies, however ‘just being a team member’ at the hackathon does not mean that you get to own any code or IP that your teammates (or the audience) produce in the future based on the idea. Any ideas you pitch or share at the hackathon are released into the ‘public domain’ and we do not require attendees to sign non-disclosure agreements! It’s just a hackathon — if you’re worried about people stealing your startup idea — then this might not be the right place to unveil it.

Does the hackathon, its sponsors, or mentors provide any assistance to teams?

All the sponsors are available to help you with your project. Contact information will be available on DevPost.com.

Hackathon Policies

Hackathon Anti-Harassment & Intellectual Property Policy

We also ask all participants to be in compliance with the Hack Code of Conduct Terms.

All hackathon participants are required to agree with the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Please report any incidents or concerns to the event staff, or contact [email protected].

I. Code of Conduct

We fully support appropriate behavior by all participants at technical events, including all hackathon conferences. We expect all attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers, and staff to help us make the hackathon a place that welcomes and respects all participants, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, or religion. We will not tolerate harassment of conference participants in person, online, or in any other form.

Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, overly sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention.

We expect all participants—attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers—to follow the Code of Conduct during the hackthon. This includes conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

We thank our participants for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all participants.

II. Anti-Harassment

Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Overly sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue, including hacks, talks, workshops, parties, social media and other online media.

Photography is encouraged, but other participants must be given a reasonable chance to refuse being photographed. If they object to being photographed, comply with their request. It is inappropriate to take photographs in contexts where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy e.g. in bathrooms or where participants are sleeping.

Hacks created at our hackathon are equally subject to the anti-harassment policy.

Sponsors, partners, exhibitors, and volunteers are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use overly sexualized images, activities, or other material. Sponsor representatives should not use overly sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of hackathon staff immediately. Hackathon staff will happily help participants contact any local security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the hackathon.

Hackathon participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the hackathon without a refund (if applicable) at the discretion of the hackathon organizers. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the hackathon organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the hackathon with no refund.

We expect participants to follow these rules at hackathon and workshop venues and hackathon-related social events. We value your attendance.
