A hackathon is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including domain experts, collaborate intensively on software projects.

Teams are usually 4-5 people in size. Ideally, at least two technical students, one business student, and a user interface student. Don't worry if you can't find your team beforehand, staff at the event will help you find your teammates provide any assistance.

Have no fear! Many hackers are just like you, in the same position. On the first day of the event, we will make sure to pair everyone up with a team of hackers so no one gets left out! There will also be a session to network with people and form teams before the event.
