Team Formation

  • Teams can consist of up to five members
  • Changes to team members are not permitted after Sunday, August 2, at 11:59 PM PST. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis as decided by the rules committee.

Project Development

  • Any software development tools, game engine, IDE, and/or programming language can be used for the event. If a team member uses a purchased tool licensed to him or her and the license is not transferable to other members the member’s team must choose one available to all developer teams.
  • You are permitted to use publicly developed and openly licensed API’s and SDKs for your project.
  • Teams can, of course, garner advice and support from organizers, volunteers, sponsors, and others.
  • A team can submit only one entry for the hackathon. Participation at the hackathon is subjected on a “per-team” basis meaning you are not allowed to be on more than one team at the event.
  • A team may not code applications that violate the code of conduct. For example, racially insensitive ideas for an application will automatically be disqualified.


Attendee Code of Conduct

  • Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, previous hackathon attendance or computing experience (or lack of any of the aforementioned). We do not tolerate harassment of hackathon participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any hackathon venue, including hacks, talks, workshops, parties, social media and other online media. Hackathon participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the hackathon at the discretion of the hackathon organizers.
