A hackathon is a ‘hacking marathon’ where people come together to create or improve a functioning software or hardware in a specific period of time. Hacking here is defined as building or creating a functioning product of their idea and not breaking a system. This is the best time to learn, experiment and collaborate with other people.
An online hackathon is the same with the regular hackathon except that it is all done remotely. We will still have activities such as talks, workshops, fun activities but all happening online. One of the advantages here is learning how to work remotely with someone else.
Fun! Collaboration! Meeting new people! Learning New Technologies! Helping Others and more… :)
For this hackathon, there is no required or limit in the team size. You can work on your own, but it’s best to work with others so you can learn from them or help them. Some challenges if you are in a big group is that it takes a longer time to create something and others can’t really participate. We can say that 3-5 people in a team would be a good number.
We are opening our slack group so you can connect with them. Please don’t spam them. Request help at the channel and don't message people one by one via direct message. We will also list the ideas suggested on the website so you choose an idea that you would like to support and how you can connect with the group.
Note: We will ban you in the hackathon if you start spamming people unrelated to the hackathon.
Please submit your idea in the hackathon application (http://bit.ly/HackPHQuarantine-Join). We’ll post it on the website and add you to the slack group. If we feel that your idea is the same with someone else, we’ll connect you together so that you can work it together instead of doing duplicates of the same idea.
You can use any technology that you like as long as it is allowed and you are not violating any law or IP.
Note: All expenses due to the use of a certain technology or product (eg. Server, API, Domain name, etc) incurred in building your solution will be shouldered by you and your team. So make sure to discuss it with the team when you decide to use it.
Once done, send us an email at email@example.com so we can guide you with the submission process.
You and your team owns the project. Please discuss ownership within your team.
