A Welcome Note

Over the years we’ve seen teams of coders, designers and entrepreneurs from around the world become Whole Developers, watched as their Thoughts Become Things, and proved that Anyone Can Code. We’ve seen the code commit moment over and over again. The “oh sh*t I hope this works” moment. The moment where you know your hopes and dreams of winning that prize, that spot in the accelerator, that idea validation, are all on the line.


So, for our 10th Global Hackathon Series, we’re asking you to Commit To Your Code, and in turn commit to your project, a global ecosystem, yourself, your team, and your future.


#AH10 is here.

Hackathon Rules:

We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (read: definitely) stick by these:


1.Fresh Code
We all start coding at the same time. This is done to keep things fair. No one is allowed to come in and build on top of previous projects. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.

2. Code Review
Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

3. Ownership and IP
Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.

4. Team Size
No more than five people.

5. Submissions
Each hackathon has its individual hackathon.io page where projects will be submitted. Instructions will arrive in your inbox during the hackathon, and will be gone over during the event.

6. DEMO your Hack
You must demo a working prototype in order to win the grand prize. Pitches with only slide-decks/ Powerpoints will not be allowed. Two minute pitch and one minute Q&A from Judges.


Be cool to your fellow hackers! Check out the Code of Conduct if you need help knowing what that means 😉


What should I build?
Depends on what challenge (or how many) you’re going after! Study the challenges and use those as your guideposts. Try to build a hack that people can use, enjoy, and you can scale. Most importantly, have fun with it and try to finish on time. We know you can only do so much in 24 hours, so it’s ok if your project is not perfect (yet).


Who can attend?
Anyone and everyone! Our attendees typically consist of junior developers looking to improve their skills, senior developers looking to expand their horizons, students, designers of all skill-sets, and serious entrepreneurs that can add value to teams. Bring your idea and let’s go!


Are there travel stipends?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide travel stipends for our Global Series.


In this day and age of #selfies and #squad photos, it’s likely that photos and/or video will be taken at the event. By entering the venue, you’re giving us the OK to snap photos and post to social media.

How is the hackathon judged?

Let’s be honest, y’all can do better than powerpoints. Which is why we rock with live DEMOS only! You use a powerpoint, you won’t win. To win an AngelHack hackathon, you will have to demo your product for at least 30 seconds, but don’t worry if your project is still not 100% perfected. Projects will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Fundability: How fundable is this idea? Is there potential for a sustainable business model?
  • Execution: How well did the team execute and explain their problem? Did they demo a working solution?
  • UI/UX: Beyond design, have they thought through the end-to-end user experience for their solution?
  • Originality: How original, creative or unique is this idea?
  • Scalability: How scalable is this solution? Will it make an impact?

Photography & Videography

In this day and age of #selfies and #squad photos, it’s likely that photos and/or video will be taken at the event. By entering the venue, you’re giving us the OK to snap photos and post to social media.
