  4. Do we need to have the entire idea fully working? A well-thought out gamification system at the conceptual level that is fully flushed out with design work is acceptable. No coding is necessary for this hackithon, unless you compete in the local competition.

  5. How is the environment? Will your environment support any language? Will you provide any IDE and DB for us to work on ideas? Morrisville Central is coded with React Native.

Only if you select to compete in the local event, then at least one team member must be physically in attendance for the event through the judging times on April 27th, 2024, from 10AM until 5PM EST.

  8. Do I need to give a demo for the product that I have built? We do want at least a narrated slideshow that explains how the gamification system each team has designed will function. Explaining the system, how it works, any other ideas or thoughts on it as well. The local competition will require the team to present the idea to the judges at the event.

  9. A fully developed application need to have a solid backend for data storage like SQL, SharePoint etc. since its online, is it accepted to show only the proto type of it? Yes it's absolutely fine to submit just the prototype. If you use any database like MySQL or PostgresSQL you can also submit a database dump along with your submission. However you are allowed to submit just the prototype.

  10. If it is a team submission, does that mean all team members will have access to work at the same time? Yes, all team members can login from their account and do application submission on HackerEarth.

  11. Who will own the IP(Intellectual Property) Rights to the product that I have built? The developer/developers of the web/mobile application will have all rights and own the IP of the product.
