FAQs

Who's invited?

If you're a university student, from any country, you're welcome! If you're in high school, you're extra welcome. Bring Student ID and mittens!

What do I have to pay for?

Admission is free and that includes food and drink for the duration of the hackathon.

How big should teams be?

Teams are capped at 4 people. Don't worry if you don't have a team, we'll help you find people to hack with on spot. It's also ok to do it alone, but it probably won't be as fun.

What's the format?

Anything goes! Web, desktop, mobile, and hardware projects are all welcome. (All hacks should be computer-related, though.) Projects will be judged based on creativity, technical difficulty, polish, and usefulness.

Can I keep working on a past project?

No, start fresh. If you do decide to skirt this rule, let us know so we can judge your work fairly. Using third-party APIs and libraries is definitely okay, as long as they're accessible by everyone else as well.

What if I'm a noob hacker?

This is a great opportunity for you to learn how to hack! We'll have lots of evangelists walking around and a ton of mentors, all willing to help. Please note that we'll only consider reimbursing travel if you submit a hack.

What should I bring?

Bring whatever you hack with, a student ID , mittens, deodorant (please), and an idea!

What is acceptable behaviour at a hackathon?

Make sure you read up on our code of conduct . This defines what we expect from all hackers, sponsors, voluteers and attendees at McHacks V.
