MY-HACK FAQs

How do I form a team?

There are two ways: either you bring your own team members or meet members on the day of the event to form your team.


Will food be provided?

YES! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks will all be provided 🙂


Which workshops should I attend?

There will be 5 workshops, but the only mandatory workshop is the project management session. Choosing any other workshops you want to attend is up to you. Try your best to attend as many as you can by dividing your team members to join parallel workshops.


Do I have to stay overnight?

We strongly recommend that you stay overnight, but you don’t have to. This will be an experience for you as there will be games and activities beyond working on your hack or attending workshops 🙂

 

Where do we sleep?

This is a “no-sleep” hackathon. If you choose to nap or sleep then we suggest you go home whenever you feel tired.

 

Will there be carpool/ transportation help?

If you let us know in advance, we can help arrange any transportation services from ADAMS, Diyanet Center of America, or ISB.


What are the prizes?

It’s a surprise 🙂 But there will be cash prizes of up to $500 for first place winners.

 

Can high school and college students be on the same team?

Yes, of course.

 

Do I need to know how to code before joining?

No! This is an event for you to come learn new things and expand your abilities! If you have previous coding experience that’s great but if you don’t, don’t let that set you back. There are so many ways you can still create an app demo or webpage or pitch a hack idea without prior coding knowledge. If you want to make your hack more coding intense you can always use the help of mentors and your teammates to learn
from them!
