AngelHack will be organising a two-day hackathon in Vizag on April 21 and 22. Aimed at providing a platform for those looking to pioneer innovative technological solutions, this event would also help in bolstering the entrepreneurial spirits of youngsters, the organisers feel.

AngelHack organises Global Hackathon Series across the globe every year. The theme for this year’s hackathon has been chosen as Seamless Technology. The winners will be awarded a prize and an opportunity to collaborate with the sponsors too. Technologies that can help address a social or environmental problem, in addition to winning prizes, also stand a chance to receive acclamation at the global level.

Below are the rules for the event:

1. Fresh Code –  It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.

2. Code Review – Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

3. Ownership and IP – You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that.

4. Team Size – No more than five people.

5. Submissions – Each hackathon has its individual hackathon.io page where projects need to be submitted by the designated time. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that.

6. Demos – You’ll have 2 minutes to demo the functionality of your project and talk through your idea, and 1 minute for Q&A from judges.

7. Be cool to your fellow hackers! Check out their Code of Conduct.
