>> 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.
