We want the Code-A-Thon to be fun and fair for everyone. Your code should be started from scratch and you may only incorporate outside resources (code, libraries, graphics, etc) that are freely licensed and accessible to all participants equally. 

This is a code-a-thon for coders. While we do welcome other participant, we are expecting some demoable product or scalable idea. There will be opportunity to pair up with others to form a team. 


New code: Submissions judged only on content developed during hackathon period. A note on packages: while we encourage the use of packages to save time, in judging, greater emphasis will be placed on original code, especially for visualizations. 

Code review: All code must be submitted to a repository on Github to verify time of edits.

Presentation: All teams must deliver a 4 minute presentation, followed by 2 mins of Q&A from the judges and audience. 

Content: All submissions must be related to healthcare diagnostic and VR/AR.

All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, previous hackathon attendance or computing experience (or lack of any of the aforementioned). We do not tolerate harassment of hackathon participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue, including hacks, talks, workshops, parties, social media and other online media.
