I'm at my first Hackathon with my best friends in life and there has never been a time when I've felt this miserable all my life.
The theme is IoT (something idk jackshit about) and people here are done with the projects when we are still at the idea stage.
Yes, it's true that this shit is intense but I really want to do good at this.
This is what I've learned from my first Hackathon:
1. Prepare your shit.
Unless the problem statements are given on the spot, you should've discussed everything that you would be doing and not divert. (We spent 5 hours on a problem statement and then we decided not to go with it.)
2. Have people with different abilities who you can trust to get the work done without you having to give a second thought.
3. Don't you dare build a sub-par application. What's the fucking use of that? Don't do it for the certificate or the stickers. If you do that, then how the fuck can you make yourself put those stickers on your laptop?!
4. Have food. Keep yourself healthy and up to max potential.
5. DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED. A lot of people will look like they're done with the shit. You know what you have to do now? NOT GIVE A FUCK! Just focus and do your thing and make it awesome.7
People! I'm attending to a hackathon for the first time (this country sucks)
I hope I can get dev friends, or even a dev gf (my whole life dream)11
Don't remind me of that hackathon 😑 My advice: don't go there without being prepared, team wise, tool wise and skill wise. And whatever happens, don't forget to have fun.1
In the 2nd proyect we create a Data dashboard i do my very best effort to create Js funcional code and other 2 girls works in css and html.
Im really proud of my work (1st time!)
In 2 weeks im gonna participate in Angelhack Santiago Hackathon 2018
I need an advice for me its a really big step11
Registered for hackathon with 2 Android dev and 2 Full stack dev. Turns out the theme for hackathon is totally out of our scope. This will be my very first hackathon.
Any advice, roadmap, suggestions for the problem statement?10
I'm gonna participate to a 48h hackathon tomorrow in Glasgow. If you are going to be there, let me know! Also, since it's going to be my first time, do you have any suggestion? 😀4
I need professional advice. Or at least informed opinions.
I recently competed in a hackathon and won. My team wants to commercialize our idea. I'm worried that since we publicly displayed it, that the I.P. rights are a little "in the air". We NEVER verbally gave anyone the rights, and the rules of the hackathon don't even mention the words.
What would a legally savvy person do?3
Hey, I am planing on creating a hackathon for my highschool. I was wondering if anybody has any advice.3
I am going to a hackathon for the first time with little knowledge (or u can say no knowledge) what advice can anyone can give so that I don't screw it up and how can I learn new things?3
I'm attending my first 'hackathon' at University next week. They've given us all some details about what it's on.
It's basically dashboards and data (I don't know much,) but I know nothing about either of those topics.
Does anyone have any advice? I feel I may have thrown myself in the deep end and I don't want to disappoint my team (whomever they may be, I meet them on the day).
My team's doing an internal hackathon this week focusing on improving developer productivity and happiness and I haven't been able to settle on an idea yet... Any help appreciated!4
