What is a hackathon?
An event where people come together (physically or virtually) to collaborate on technology-based solutions.
The word "hackathon" is a misnomer. There will be no "hacking" in terms of gaining unauthorized access to private information. A more accurate term may be "techathon."
Is there a registration fee?
Nope. Legal Services Corporation supports the event, so there isn't a cost to participate.
What does "access to justice" mean?
How much time will this take prior to the hackathon?
Generally 2-4 hours to decide on a project, meet with your project team, and do some prep work. Some do more, some do less.
What if I can't attend the entire hackathon?
Feel free to join for what you can. And let your team know about your schedule.
Will there be prizes?
What is the schedule for future hackathons?
I can't attend the hackathon, but I have an idea for a project that I would like to share
Are there any rules on what technologies can be used?
Nope - your choice.
I'm not a programmer. Why would I attend a hackathon?
Building a good solution requires a variety of roles. Just to name a few ~
>> People who understand the client perspective
>> People who know the law and how it can be applied
>> Designers and architects to put the pieces together
>> Programmers that can turn the vision into reality
>> Project managers to keep everything on track
