Our hackathon is suitable for all experience levels. You will compete against people at your skill level and will be provided guidance and workshops based on capability. Almost 30% of our teams go home with a wonderful prize and almost 18 participants get a raffle prize. We also provide all of our participants with many benefits and tokens throughout the hackathon. 

Participation Cost

Nothing, it's absolutely free, and if you win, you can recieve prizes worth up to 100 dollars. 

Minimum Technical Skill Needed

We recommend that to get a better shot at winning, you familiarize yourself with some basics of coding but you don't need any prior experience to attend. We have numerous very well-planned workshops from which you can come, attend, and learn. We still encourage you to attend, even with no prior experience, so that you may become experienced and return in our next hackathon prepared to win. 

Time Commitment

The hackathon will take place July 31st - August 1st. It will pretty much require the entire day, both days. However, the second day will primarily only last till the evening.
