Event description

Description

The annnual UQCS Hackathon is on again.

We're kicking off Friday with dinner and team forming, but if you're already in a team you're free to start hacking right away. Lunch and dinner on both days is on us so you can focus on producing something awesome in time for presentations on Sunday afternoon.

After presentations, there'll be a break for dinner while our panel of judges decides the winners of each of our three prizes. Everything should be all wrapped so you can head home by 9PM.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What's included in my UQCS Hackathon ticket?
Hackathon entry, five meals, and a great experience

What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is a weekend of intensive development where developers, designers, and UXperts come together and (try to) produce some tech product (be it software or hardware) in time to present it at the end of the event.

What do I bring?
You only need to bring whatever tools you need to build something awesome

Do I have to work in a team?
No, you don't have to work in a team (we do recommend it though)

What if I don't have an idea?
That's totally fine! We'll have pitching of ideas on Friday night so you can try and find a team, or you might be inspired by a pitch and come up with something fantastic.

What's the best type of project to build?
Prize-wise we don't discriminate, but from past hackathons we've seen, web-based projects seem to be the easiest to get done in time.

Rules

To ensure we have a smooth running competition that's fair for everyone involved, we need a few rules:

  • All resources used as part of the project (code, images, designs) must either be published before the start of the hackathon, or created after 6PM on Friday the 25th of August, 2017
  • Code must be in some form of version control. This includes copying folders and changing their name to say 'MyProject v1'. We just need some way of seeing your progression over the weekend
  • In order to be eligible for a prize, you must present your project on Sunday evening
  • You must have the legal right to use all components of your project
  • There is no limit on team size, but for prize items we will award a maximum of 5 per team
  • Any data or APIs in use must be accessible to all participants for free
  • Judges' decisions are final
