How long is this hackathon?
The hackathon will be 24-ish hours long. The best projects maximize that time so plan to stay over with your team; there will be snacks provided and lots of caffeine.
What will we need to present?
There will be two rounds of judging: First, judges will make rounds to meet with teams to vet the technical specs of the project and look at the coding you've done to create your idea. The second round will be presentations which focus on the feasibility and innovation of the idea. Judges will spend 5 minutes with each team during rounds and then presentations will be 3 minute maximum with 2 min Q&A.
Is it ok if I don't have a team?
Yes! If you do not have a team, we'll split you up at the hackathon into groups of 4-5.
Is the hackathon located downtown?
Yes, it's located in Tribeca and has a gorgeous night-time view of the World Trade Center.
Will food be served?
