Hackathon FAQ – Rules & Guidelines

What is the Fee to Participate?

It costs HK$50 to participate in SmarTone Hackathon.

How are Teams Formed?

Teams can be formed online in advance using SmarTone’s Hackathon.io page, or onsite the day of hackathon.

What is the Fresh Code Rule?

All code developed as part of the SmarTone Hackathon must be fresh. Before the start of the SmarTone Hackathon, developers can create wireframes, designs and user flows. They can also come with hardware. But to keep things fair, all code must be written onsite at the SmarTone Hackathon. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries.

Who should attend?

Developers, Designers, Entrepreneurs. In other words: ANYONE interested in the smart property space.
