Frequently asked questions
Can I participate remotely?

This is a physical hackathon, so attendance in person is necessary to take part.

Does it cost anything to get in?

If your team is accepted after applying, it doesn't cost anything to get in.

Is transportation provided?

If you sign up now you have a chance to win a free round trip flight to San-Francisco! Unfortunately we cannot provide transportation for everyone as it would be cost prohibitive.

Can I apply to be a volunteer at this hackathon?

We would gladly accept your help! Hackathons wouldn't exist without amazing people who are willing to volunteer their time to make everyone happy. Please apply here.
