This is the premier hacking event for the Central Valley, but we also use this event to help build the community.  If you are uncomfortable with competing, we still want you there.  Come out and work on a personal project, or do something to learn a new skill, we just want you there.  
Teams that want to compete will need to sign up for judging at some point during the event.  Each team will have 5 minutes to impress a team of judges with their project.  The top 10 teams (guaranteed to include at least 3 Jr teams) will make the finals.  Those teams will present their project in the final judging round on the main stage and will be judged by the event judges.
