    Hi, what are the skill set needed for Hackathon? I have never been to one before and don't know where to start. Also, if I cannot join a team right away, can I volunteer to help?

      We accept developers/designers at all levels in their experience. As long as you know how to code or can show some designing experience, you can apply. You can also post on our Discussion board to find a team. We could definitely use some extra hands re volunteering! Email me at [masked] for more details.

      Hi Louisa, my team is open for a front-end developer. We are building an email aggregator. Would you like to know further about my startup idea?

    Hello, do you know what opportunities we have to sleep near the place? Thx!

      We don't have any discounts set up with hotels, but a quick Google search shows these in the area:­

      The venue will be open 24 hours for the event so you can technically sleep there as well.

    Can I volunteer if I'm not a dev but learning how to code?

      Sure thing! Email me at [masked] and we can discuss specifics.
