Yes, good question! We have adopted the MLH code of conduct , which all attendees will be required to adhere to.
In the context of a hackathon, "hacking" is to build a real application over the length of the event. It's important to not confuse this with illegal hacking, which is gaining unauthorized access to a computer.
If you already have a team of 2-4 people you want to work with, that's awesome! If not don't worry because we'll have an opportunity for people to join a team if they need one.
Come to CommunityHack! Coding is fun, creative, and an important skill, and CommunityHack is the perfect way to learn. We'll have workshops and mentors to help guide you.
You could bring a laptop if you want but we'll have computers available with a lot of development software already downloaded and installed on it! This isn't an overnight hackathon, so no need for sleeping gear!
Yes. Lots and lots of food.
