Anyone with an internet connection & is 18 years old and above!

❓Can non-developers/engineers participate in the hackathon?

Yes! We want anyone with ideas or the passion to innovate to participate. Teams will however need at least one individual who can build/code a prototype as a code artefact is required for project submission.

πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ What is the total number of participants I can have on my team?

The minimum participants in a team is 2, while the maximum number is 4.

πŸ‘­ Can I form teams with individuals located in another country?

Teams are recommended to be formed within your own locations & timezones to avoid timezone fatigue but this is not mandatory. You can choose to join a team located in another timezone as well. However, do note that due to the pandemic at hand, teams will be strictly virtual to ensure parity and prevent any advantages given to teams formed in open office locations over locations where offices are still closed.

✍️ Do all members of my team have to register for the hackathon?

Yes! Only registered individuals are eligible to participate. Please ensure that all members of your team have registered their teams accordingly as well.

AWS Lab is the preferred infrastructure for the development tasks. However, AWS DEV/QC will be allowed for teams which wish to do an integration with some existing DEV/QC system(s). In the event your team is using AWS DEV/QC, please ensure that you:
