Who can participate?

The hackathon is open to all students in institutions such as NUS, NTU, SMU and SUTD. Students in polytechnics and junior colleges are welcome as well.

Members of the public who are not students are encouraged to come down to hack and enjoy the atmosphere.

I'm not a student, can I participate?

Yes. Do come down to hack anyway. You won't be eligible for the prizes but do register so that we can provision enough food for everyone.

How big should my team be?

The maximum team size is 4; you can participate individually as well.

Can I use existing code?

You are free to use any open source libraries, including those you have coded before.

However, you cannot use a project you have made before.

Will I have IP rights over my code?

Yep. All your base still belongs to yous.

What's the judging criteria?

Please check the rulebook for more details.

Will food be provided?

Dinner and supper are on us, as well as the next day's breakfast and lunch, and snacks in between.

Oh, did we mention free-flow of coffee and drinks throughout?

What am I supposed to develop?

Anything you want. A good starting point would be to consider problems you want to solve.

Am I limited to X language, Y framework, Z platform?

Use whatever language/framework/platform you want :)

Even a hardware project?

Sure! We really do mean whatever you want.

I still don't know what to build. Help!
