Participants pitch their ideas for development (the themes are also released in advance of the hackathon so that participants have the chance to pre-plan their ideas).
>> Everyone divides into teams and, for the rest of Saturday, overnight, and most of Sunday, works on developing & building the ideas into full fledged, operational solutions.
>> Sunday evening, work stops and each team presents their solution to the judges and all of the participants.
>> Sunday evening (7 April) the judges award the winner and runner-up prizes for each theme category.You can see more detail in the hackathon rules.
>> FYI, participants must bring their own hardware (i.e. laptop, PCs, mobile devices, extension cords, etc.)
>> Tutors and Mentors will be available in-situ during the hackaton to assist all the participants.
