Q: Can I come if I am not a developer?
A: Yes. We welcome all people with all backgrounds. In addition to developers/technologists we need designers and subject matter experts.
Q: What problems will we be working on?
A: A few problems are already tied to this page below, but most problems come out on the day of the event. Expect 15-20 problems ptiched and most of them get teams formed around them and worked on.
Q: How are the teams formed?
A: They are formed organically. After the problems are presented people join teams based on interest in the idea and needs. So if you are an mobile developer you would likely join a team that is solving a problem using mobile technology.
