This event would not be possible without the kindness of our wonderful sponsors and their belief in HackAppleton.
All participants will present their projects to a panel of judges via a three to five minute presentation window. This means that your project will not be graded if you just submit it through the DevPost. We encourage all participants to join our Discord and fill out the official sign-up, so they can be up to date and know when their presentation time slot is.
All coding languages are allowed and all types of projects are allowed. We love diversity, and we want to see what creativity you all can come up with! Happy coding!
