AngelHack’s are insanely large hackathons, which we organize to inspire entrepreneurship and introduce new technologies to developers. We see hackathons as a gateway towards the startups of tomorrow; a place where imaginative developers go to meet others and build! To the projects that win, Silicon Valley and the connections that can make your dreams come true await.
The AngelHack Competition rules below are the same around the world and allow everyone at every location an equal opportunity for success.
1. Fresh Code
We all start coding at the same time. Prior to this time you may work on your design, logo, wireframes, idea validation, digital mockups, you name it. But no coding can be done beforehand. This allows you to spend your time at AngelHack doing what you love best — HACKING!
2. Code Review
Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event. This will be to ensure everything was built at the hackathon.
3. It’s okay to Hack!
Feel free to use any tools, tricks, gems, shortcuts, or workarounds you’ve discovered over the years to help you build quicker. Use any frameworks, hosting service, etc. you please.
4. Ownership and IP
Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.
5. Team Size
Teams of up to 5 humans are allowed. You can also add 1 cyborg or Furby.
6. What to Build
Create a prototype of a solution to a problem that can’t be easily found anywhere else.
Each hack will have a unique hackathon.io page and each team must list their project on hackathon.io by 1:00pm on Sunday.
8. Have fun
It’s a hackathon! Use whatever languages or hacks you have in your arsenal. Show us hardware. Show us new concepts. Show us anything you’d like.
