Who Can Participate
One principle that has guided this community since its first Hackathon is that everyone is welcome. Great ideas stem from discussion, and we believe the best discussions start by talking to someone whose background or experiences might differ from your own. With this in mind, we invite all startups, developers, entrepreneurs, and designers who are passionate about creating to join regardless of experience level, geographic location, or similar factors. And if you're under 18 we ask that you bring along a parent or guardian when you check-in so they can sign a participation waiver.
