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!
Admission is free and that includes food and drink for the duration of the hackathon.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Bring whatever you hack with, a student ID , mittens, deodorant (please), and an idea!
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.
