No. You are more than welcome to make a team before the hackathon, but loads of people come without a team. We will help everyone find a team Friday night. We recommend groups of 4-5 persons, but anything is allowed.
Sure, you should definitely attend! Whether you have written lots of code or just have a creative soul, this hackathon needs you! In true hackathon spirit all students are very friendly and willing to help each other out.
Yes, we’re not kidding you. Thanks to our sponsors we will provide free food, swag, snacks, drinks and a place for you to sleep at the hackathon. Plus, there will be mentors, talks and judges only for the sake of YOU.
You might think that a hackathon is for programmers only, but that’s not true. Technology and code is one thing – creative minds, bright insights and strategic eyes are another. So, as long as you are a student above 18 years old, you are more than welcome – no matter what university or study program you attend. Actually, we believe that the more different people we are, the better.
AUHack will start in the evening of Friday at 18.30 and end Sunday at 16.00. All work eligible for prizes must be worked on and completed during this period of time and can't be prepared from home. Throughout the hackathon inspiring events, talks and mentoring sessions will be hosted. For a more detailed schedule see below.
Need to have: Laptop, cellphone and chargers.
Nice to have: A sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, clothes and a well-rested and open mind. If you want to hack on hardware, you might need to bring it yourself. What you won't need to bring is a pre-determined team, an idea for a hack, nor food and drinks. Also, there is absolutely no reason to bring bad mood.
No. That's not fair. You can come up with ideas, but not build them. You are of course allowed to use libraries, frameworks and templates for your hacks.
You have the fantastic opportunity to learn new stuff, try out your skills and make new friends. Isn't that just great? Everyone will be a winner!... Okay, we will also have some awesome prices.
There will be rooms to sleep in. You will have to bring your own bedroll, sleeping bag and pillows though.
You must fill out the application form. After completing the form, the AUHack team will send you an e-mail confirmation.

The schedule will continuously be updated until we get closer to the event. But it will contain lots of time for hacking, talks, mini-events and much more!
