What is a hackathon?

Do I have to be a programmer or designer to attend?
It would be nice but it’s not mandatory, while it’s important you have an interest in technology and building things, we’re looking for passionate hustlers to participate in as part of our community, so if you are a kick ass ideator, you’re more than welcome to join in on the fun.
Do I have to come with an idea?
Nope, only if you want to. Those with ideas have 60 seconds to pitch on Day 1 to form a team, and those who don't pitch can join in find an idea they want to spend the weekend working on.
How do I find a team / How are teams formed?
Teams are created on the first night during the briefing. If you have an idea, you will have 60 seconds to pitch it to the whole group, if you don’t, not to worry, you’ll get to mix and mingle so you can find an idea you believe in and help lead your team to victory!
