What is ETHUofT?
ETHUoFT is a student-focused Hackathon aimed at giving participants the necessary skills to contribute to the Ethereum ecosystem. Over the course of our 36 hour Hackathon there will be various workshops held by Ethereum experts. We want to help provide the needed resources, mentors, and software to make awesome things possible.
Who can participate in the Hackathon?
Though we place a heavy emphasis on students, anyone (anywhere) can apply to participate in our Hackathon! All applications are vetted based on interest in Ethereum and demonstrated ability to code or contribute in some meaningful way to a project. Non-technical participants are also welcome, as long as you have a desire to learn.
How much does it cost to attend ETHUofT?
(Note that you'll still need to arrange your own travel. Reimbursements are dependant on the amount of sponsorship we recieve.)
How many people can be on a team?
Teams must have at least 2 people and can have up to 4. If you don't have a team coming into the event, you will have an opportunity at the beginning to find like-minded teammates.
What if I've never participated in a Hackathon before?
That's perfectly fine! There’s a first time for everything. As long as you’re interested in learning and building, we'll be providing mentors, resources and workshops to help you to make your ideas a reality.
Can I work on my project before the Hackathon?
Nope. That's against the spirit of this Hackathon.
Are there prizes?
Yep. Prizes TBA.
