Frequently Asked Questions
What is a hackathon?
How do I sign up?
In order to participate, please visit our Devpost, create an account and sign up for our hackathon.
Where will this be held?
Discord will be used to let you talk to other participants, and send you announcements.
For workshops, and other sub-events, we’re planning on using Hopin; however, as we approach the hackathon, this may be subject to change.
Who is eligible to attend?
So...will there be hacking?
Is this free?
Are hackathons difficult?
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 languages. We will also have mentors available to help troubleshoot and provide further 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.
What are workshops?
Workshops are mini-lessons that introduce one to a concept or topic. Here at Recess Hacks we are planning to host several workshops such as Git and Github, Networking, Web Development, etc.
What is the maximum team size? Do I need to have one?
You may work solo or in a team of up to 4 people.
How can I make a team? What if I don't have one?
If you have people you want to work with, you can add them to your team on the Devpost. If you do not have anyone to work with yet, you can go to the “looking for team” section on the Devpost and meet others. Similarly, you may also introduce yourself in the discord, and chat with others. If you find someone you want to work with, just make sure to add them to your team on Devpost.
Is there anyone I can talk to if I’m having trouble with my project or the hackathon?
Why do I not have permissions to talk on the Discord server?
You need to sign up on our Devpost and provide your Discord username and tag. Then our organizers will manually give you permissions. If you have any issues please reach out to us on #help-verify on the Discord server.
What if I have other questions, suggestions, or feedback?
If you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
I want to help out as a mentor, workshop host, or judge!
Thank you! Send us an email here and we'll see how we can work together!
