All participants must abide by the MLH Code of Conduct.

All projects must be created entirely within the 36-hour span beginning Friday 9pm and Sunday 9am. Projects are free (and encouraged) to make use of any existing, publicly-available code or hardware not built for the express purpose of the hackathon. For example, a project may make use of open-source community libraries, but cannot make use of code written by team members specifically for the hackathon. Organizers reserve the right to determine the eligibility of a project.
