Knives, firearms and other dangerous things are not permitted at the event.
Are we allowed to build on past projects?
A hackathon is an experience to build something new within a set amount of time. Therefore, you cannot work on past projects. However, using your own open-source or third party libraries is fine, so long as the project is new.
What kind of hardware will you have?
We will have a variety of hardware available for use. A full hardware list is coming soon!
How big are the teams?
Teams are composed of 2-5 people. You can do it alone, but it’ll be less fun!
How much does the event cost?
EarthxHack is 100% free. We want you to feel welcomed and provide everything you need for an amazing weekend.
Where will it be?
EarthxHack will be held at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas on April 27-28, at the Earthx2019.
