The Electric City Hacks organizing team reserves the right to disqualify project submissions that do not adhere to the following guidelines. Please contact an Electric City Hacks organizer if you have any questions regarding these guidelines.

Contributors

Projects can be completed individually or in a group with a maximum size of 4 students. All team members must be approved, registered Electric City Hacks attendees present at the event.

Code

All code written for Electric City Hacks must be written between 10:00PM on Friday, November 4th, 2016 and 10:00AM on Sunday, November 6th, 2016 with the exception of code taken from public and open source libraries, APIs, or tutorials.

Hardware

All hardware assembled for Electric City Hacks must be assembled between 10:00PM on Friday November 4th and 10:00AM on Sunday November 6th, with the exception of manufactured parts that do not require soldering or assembly with a breadboard outside of the factory (such as robotic arms, Myos, or 3D printed parts).

Graphics

All art assets brought into Electric City Hacks for your project must be free and publicly available.

Planning

Students are free to bring codeless wireframes for the layout of their projects. Hardware may be prototyped in advance to optimize the shape and size of parts, but the actual project presented for submission must be assembled at Electric City Hacks.

Originality

The final product must be original: it must not be the same as the product of a tutorial, a submission to a previous hackathon, or a personal project completed before Electric City Hacks. Attendees are trusted to ensure the originality of their projects in good faith. Electric City Hacks retains the right to inspect the source code of projects in case of dispute. All projects and intellectual property produced at Electric City Hacks belong to the attendees who produced it.
