How big are teams?
Teams are composed of 2-5 people. You can do it alone, but it'll be less fun!

How much does this event cost?

What should I bring?
Laptops, chargers, cell phones, and of course passion are helpful. Other useful items include: toiletries, a change of clothes, a pillow, some earplugs, an eye mask, a jacket, and...deodorant. Knives, firearms, and other dangerous things are not permitted at the event.

What kind of hardware will you have?
We will have a variety of hardware available for use. A full hardware list will be available soon!

Are we allowed to build on past projects?
A hackathon is an experience to build something new within a set amount of time. Therefore, you cannot work on past projects. However, using your own open-source or third party libraries is fine, so long as the project is new.

Will there be buses to Dallask12Hackathon?
Yes! We are currently finalizing our bussed regions, but will be initially dependent on historic attendance record and refined by registration numbers.

Will Dallask12Hackathon provide reimbursements?
We will be providing reimbursements to a select percentage of out-of-state students only.

I don't see a registration option?
We will be launching registration on January 1st, 2016.
