Rules

Teams of Four

Teams can be anywhere from one to four members.

APIs, Services, and Open Source

You are encouraged to use 3rd party services, APIs, open source projects, libraries, and frameworks. You don't have to reinvent the wheel!

Code, Design, Assets, etc

To ensure a level field for all contestants, all code, design, art, music, SFX, and assets must be created during the duration of the hackathon. We want to ensure that all participants start off on the same footing and we also want to preserve the true nature of a hackathon. The only exception to this rule would include material that is freely available to the public. Some examples of this would be: public domain images, creative commons music, open source libraries. We take this rule very seriously for the sake of all members attending the event. Failure to comply may result in the offending team's disqualification.

If your team qualifies for prizes, the team will be subject to a code review to verify that there was no foul play.

Ownership

All teams retain full ownership of what they have created during the hackathon.

Be Open

We welcome attendees from all backgrounds. This event is about increasing the overall amount of innovation, partnership, and engagement in the developer community.

Be Respectful

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and racist, sexist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for this event*.

(Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.)

Be Awesome & Have Fun

Hack, meet new people, get creative, and have a good time. Getting something meaningful done within such a short amount of time can be stressful, but we'd like to encourage everyone to take a break every now and then to relax and enjoy the event.

**Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the hackathon at the sole discretion of the hackathon organizers. Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.
