Some of these could cause serious problems if you don’t check them beforehand. My plan is to keep this up to date as more hackathon gotchas become apparent.
- Will I be allowed to sleep?
- Do you have a Code of Conduct?
- Am I being exploited? Check who owns your IP.
- Is alcohol being served?
- If I’m legally a child, can I attend? There’s often not a clear policy on this. You might need to reach out to the organisers.
- Do I need parental consent to attend if I’m under a certain age?
