Can I still attend if I don't know how to code?
For starters, you do not need to submit code! No-code creations are cool, too. Just make sure that it’s a functional creation, not just a design.
In addition, you could team up with other people! Many teams have a designer who creates design concepts and aesthetics. You could also be the marketer of your project. Being able to present your project effectively in your given time may make or break your presentation. Hackathons need all sorts of people: you don’t have to be the one who’s coding.
What if I’m new to coding, but I want to learn how to code?
Don’t worry! We will have workshops, some of which will introduce
you to the
basics of programming in a variety of topics and programming
will also have mentors available to help troubleshoot and provide
assistance if needed.
Hackathons are great for helping you learn how to code! Workshops and mentors are here to help you with any problems that may arise.
