What's a Hackathon, and can I participate?

What if I don't want to present my hack?
Unfinished or unimpressive (so you think) projects should be presented anyway! Presenting your hack gives you a chance to be proud of what you’ve done, and a constructive perspective of where you should be headed next.
What if I don't have a team or an idea?
Don't worry, most people don’t! We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with. It’s perfectly normal to go around to people, tell them you’re looking for a team, and ask if you can help out. You can also show yourself off at #find-teammates (In the discord server).
