Frequently asked questions

I have signed up, when can I expect to hear back?


We'll be reaching out to accepted applicants with participation details a week before the Hackathon.




I am not a coder/programmer. Can I still take part?


Yes you can. But since you are expected to create a working solution, having a coder/programmer on the team would be great help.




My teammates aren't from the same city, will that be an issue?


Not at all. This is an online hackathon and as long as you can coordinate with your team you are good to go.




Do we have to stay online for the entirety of the 48 hours?


As a part of the Hackathon you will be assigned tasks and will have your progress monitored. We want you to be able to communicate with us whenever needed.
