2. Actually Build Something
This isn’t a Slide-ware event! Build and demonstrate a working project, don’t just show us screenshots and slides.
3. Write Your Code Here
The project you present must be coded entirely during the Hackathon. The only exceptions are for publicly available frameworks/APIs and open-source code that has been available for at least a month. If it feels shady to use the code, don’t.
4. Code Audits
Finalists will have their code audited to make sure it’s all new and legit, by a developer appointed by MobileMonday. Your code belongs to you and we won’t share it with anyone, but we will want to see it if you win.
5. Track Your Code
Use Git or an equivalent to track your code as you write it. It’s good practice, and if it comes down to an audit, it’ll help you prove your code is new.
6. Build Something New And Great
This isn’t an opportunity to promote your team’s pre-existing product. Don’t tack one tiny feature onto your existing product and call it a day.
7. Present The Project You Submitted
You must present your hack as described in your submission – if you deviate from your accepted submission, we’ll have to boot you from the stage. Don’t submit one thing and then abuse the stage and respect of the audience to present something different.
8. Team Size Limit
We’re limiting the number of members per team at 5, in the interest of keeping things fair. All other things equal, it’s not very reasonable for a team of 2 or 3 to compete against a team of 20.
Also, we strongly suggest that each hacker gives their attention to just one team, rather than trying to be a part of multiple projects; we want to see your best work, and it’s hard to do your best work when you’re jumping from table to table.
9. Team Formation and Prize Awards
It’s important to have a record of the final team members. Prize monies will be divided and equally distributed to each team member of the project posted in DevPost. If your profile is not part of the team winning project submitted, you don’t get your share of the award.
10. Your code is your code
We agree that whatever code you create is not MobileMonday’s intellectual property and we will have no rights to it, other than the right to examine it if you win.
