Schedule subject to awesome changes. Stay Tuned!

We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably stick by these:

1. Fresh Code

We all start coding at the same time. This is done to keep things fair. No one is allowed to come in and build on top of previous projects. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.

2. Code Review

Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

3. Ownership and IP

Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.

4. Team Size

Teams of up to 5 humans are allowed. You can also add 1 cyborg, Furby, drone, or Sphero.

5. Submissions

Each hackathon has its individual hackathon.io page, which projects should be submitted on. Submissions take place after 24 hours of pure hacking.

6. DEMO your Hack

You must demo your hack in order to present. No slide-decks or Powerpoint will be allowed. Two minute presentation and one minute Q&A from Judges.

7. Have a damn good time!

What should I build?

Let your gut guide you!
Innovative, scaleable, disruptive and impactful!
Watch out for our theme this year!

Who can attend?

Anyone and everyone. This includes developers, designers, entrepreneurs, business developers, students and more.

Are there travel stipends?

Unfortunately, we cannot provide travel stipends for our global series.

How is the hackathon judged?

Let’s be honest, y’all can do better than Powerpoints. Which is why we rock with live DEMOS only! No exceptions. To win an AngelHack hackathon, you will have to demo your product for at least 30 seconds, but don’t worry if your project is still not 100% perfected. Projects will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Impact: How impactful will this solution be for it’s target audience? Is it scalable?
  • Creativity: How original is this solution?
  • Design: How well designed is this solution, from front end through to UI/UX?
  • Execution: How well executed is this solution from start to finish?

Last thing.
