Event Info

  • This is a 24 hour event (see the schedule above) for one to four person teams.
  • You must be 18 or older to participate.
  • This is an open hackathon, bring you own project to hack on.
  • This event is designed to gather the local programmer community and invite nearby communities (Bay Area, Sacramento, Fresno) to come out and play.  We are a very coder friendly event, we will not be dragging you away from your hack for any silly stuff, but will also be offering several fun side events including a game table, and some amazing surprises.  Those side events will take place away from the programming area.
  • This event will have a Star Wars theme and a prize for the best team Star Wars Cosplay.
  • We expect some amazing programmers and designers to show up, but this event is also for the beginning programmer and designer.
  • The top ten projects as judged by our judges will be presenting their hacks in our finals.  This pre-judging will take place during the final hour of the programming time.
  • There will be a pre-hackathon event the week before to explain what this event is all about, give some advice regarding how to form teams, and help you plan your hack.  Details are here: https://www.meetup.com/Valley-Software-Developers/events/236337185/
  • We plan to record the meetup event and post it on our YouTube channel.
  • Meals will be provided for dinner Friday as well as breakfast lunch and dinner on Saturday.  We will also be providing snacks and drinks throught the event.
  • This is a free event, but we do not have funds for sponsoring travel expenses.
  • You will be required to sign a photo release to participate.  This allows us and our designees to take and use videos and photos of you during the event.
  • Please check our Rules and Code of Conduct page for more info on the specifics of this event.
  • Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.
