We would like to focus on Artificial Intelligence this time – so any topics that are related to teaching machines – are more than welcome. You can of course apply if your idea is different, but please note your team will have lower chances to be accepted.
Yes – you need to know at least one programming language to join & productively participate! If you’re open to learn new stuff – that’s even better.
Not to worry, most people don’t! We have some great activities planned before and during the event to help you meet teammates and start thinking through your ideas.
There’ll be tons of cool hardware for you to hack on. We’ll put out a list closer to the event so you can see what’s available. You can also feel free to bring your own from home or email us with any suggestions.
If you’re contemplating judging, volunteering, or mentoring, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor, check out the sponsorship section below.
If you’ve got something else on your mind, fire it off to email@example.com or ping us on Messenger.
Step one is to fill the skyhacks form and fill out some basic information about you and your team. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to apply for skyhacks #1! Note that if you’re accepted to skyhacks #1, you will need to Confirm your acceptance.
Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Space fills up quickly, so apply early! The final registration day will be Thursday, November 15th.
We’ll be releasing decisions as soon as possible, but please ping us on Facebook + give us minimum 48hrs to review all applications.
If you attend a high school, college, or university, or if you left school during the current school year, you’re good to go! But we also welcome professional engineers and software developers, passionate around AI.
Yes of course. Please register as a team leader using the first form: https://skygate.io/skyhacks/register/ and all the other team members will be asked to register as individuals, marking the fact they are part of your team (just entering the team name is fine).
All students will need to apply and be accepted to be able to attend skyhacks.
Above anything else—passion. Tell us what you care about, what excites you. We want to know what’ll drive you to start and continue hacking. If there’s something about skyhacks in particular that you’re excited about, we’d love to hear about that too!
We will not be allowing walk-ins. To ensure that you’ll be allowed in, please apply ahead of time.
If you are traveling from another country, the first step is to make sure you have a valid travel visa. If you need anything from the organizers, such as a letter of invitation, please contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re looking for sponsors in that field – but right now – we can’t guarantee anything.
Parking lots in the time of Hackathon are publicly available and free of cost.
You should bring your ID, student ID and anything you’d need for a sleepover: sleeping bag, travel / foam mat, sponge bag (tooth -brush & -paste, deodorant, shampoo), laptop, charger, towel, change of clothes, etc. You won’t need food or drinks; we’ve got you covered there. We also have sleeping rooms (separate for ladies and gents), showers + lockers.
Weapons of any kind, drugs, or alcohol. If you’re not sure whether something will be okay, please ask ahead of time!
