At the end of the day, we invite you to present a 5 minute demo of what you've been working on during the day (and we'll have prizes for the coolest demos; if you don't want to demo your stuff - that's cool too; just come to learn and have fun).

You'll also have a chance to win some of the latest Google devices (!
