Calling all the APAC Hackers!
This weekend is all about building hacks that are work-themed! Whether you'd want to help employers improve the experience of the employees or help employees improve their productivity, we can't wait to see what you build!
These events are open to all skill levels, from beginners to the most veteran developers. While we'd love to have you build something on the theme, our themes are only here for inspiration. Please build whatever you'd like and focus on having fun!
If you're from the NA/EU region, we'd love for you to join another one of our amazing hackathons which are more time-friendly for your region: TransportHacks
- We require all teams to submit a 2 minute or less demo video.
- Your code must be available in some sort of public repository.
- Your code and video must remain public post event if you want to continue being eligible for prizes. If your repo and video are not public we will select new winners.
- Your demo video must state the name of the hackathon at the beginning of the video.
- Ex. "Hey I'm Sam and this is my demo for CivicHacks."
- You must have completed all the registration steps on Devpost.
- Note that Hosted by MLH events require registration on MLH's event page.
- Your email on both platforms must match.
- Your video must be created the weekend of the hackathon.
- We do allow you to submit your project to other hackathons (this weekend only) as long as the other hackathon also allows this.
- You can no longer submit project that include prior work. In the past we allowed you to continuing work on an old project.
- There is no maximum or minimum team size but we've noticed that teams perform best when they have a maximum of 4 hackers.
