CAN WE COMPETE WITH AN EXISTING PRODUCT?
No, it all needs to be built from scratch day of, excluding any frameworks.
CAN I COME WITH AN EXISTING TEAM?
Feel free to bring friends but we'd love for you to meet and mingle with new folks too!
WHO OWNS THE IP/COPYRIGHT/PRODUCT?
You, of course. Personally, we are #TeamOpenSource, but it's all up to you.
WHY IS THERE A FEE?
To avoid no-shows. It is well worth it though, as we provide the food, drinks, coffee, mentoring, new friends, swag...
I'M NOT A BLOCKCHAIN DEVELOPER. IS THAT OKAY?
It's a beginner-friendly hackathon! In order to make the most of this hackathon, you should have basic programming knowledge. Ideally, you are familiar with web dev frameworks and have experience creating apps on your own as well.
WHICH BLOCKCHAINS? ONLY BITCOIN?
Any blockchain you want. Not restricted to Bitcoin. We will have mentors to help with several blockchain protocols, including Ethereum. Bring questions!
WHAT ARE THE JUDGING CRITERIA?
This will be explained during the hackathon.
SHOULD I LEARN ANYTHING BEFOREHAND?
You don't have to, but we like your spirit! To make the most of the day, reading the Bitcoin and Ethereum smart contracts developer doc and getting familiar with the basics would help.
CAN I HAVE A REFUND?
No refunds, but feel free to give your ticket to a friend.
I AM A BEGINNER AT THIS BLOCKCHAIN STUFF. AM I WELCOME?
Yes! This is an event to learn. Some people will be talented blockchain developers, some just beginners who are interested in blockchain. That's why it will be amazing ✨
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Your laptop! (We have seen people come empty-handed to hackathons before... yikes!)
NO MORE TICKETS AVAILABLE :( WHAT CAN I DO?
The venue can only support a certain number of people, so we apologize if the event is sold out. Let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop for the next one!
WHO ARE THE ORGANIZERS?
The event is being organized by Nisha Garigarn and Dave Idell, two of the co-founders of Croissant.
