Can I participate as an individual? I don’t have a team, but still wish to come along, can I do so?
We recommend that you work as a team at Unearthed Perth. If you don’t have a team then we’ll form one for you on the opening evening.
I won’t be able to make it for the full weekend, can I still come?
If you are unable to make one of the days/nights, that’s OK. Just let us know or let your team members know beforehand. If you haven’t formed a team yet and cannot make the Friday night, drop us an email and we’ll try to put you in a team so that you’re ready on Saturday.
What is the cost? And what does it involve?
Innovator tickets are for the full weekend. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, multiple coffees and drinks all weekend!
Discounted tickets are available for students who wish to take part. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
When will the challenges be released? Can we start working earlier?
Challenges Titles will be released the week before the event. All code, design and assets must be created during the Hackathon or be made freely available to the public.
Who owns what we make at the event?
All teams retain full ownership of what is created during the event. (*barring any prior agreements you might have with employers, universities, etc…)
