You may probably wonder
I am under 18. Am I allowed to attend?
Yes, you can. We will only need your parent’s written consent. It will be sent to you after you confirm your invitation. Just print, let sign and bring it.
I am not from Slovakia. Am I allowed to attend?
Anyone who is currently a registered student (regardless of country) is eligible to participate. If you are not a student, you can still attend, however there is lower chance you will be accepted, because as a student hackathon we need at least 85% of participants to be students.
Is Hack Kosice free to attend? What are the travel reimbursement requirements?
Absolutely! Participation is free for all invited hackers. Moreover, we provide delicious food, interesting workshops, entertaining activities, and some swag during the event. And in case you arrive from abroad we might be able to reimburse your travel expenses if you: 1. ask for it in the application portal, 2. attend the hackathon, 3. submit a project, 4. show proof of expenses.
Will Hack Kosice be held in English? Do I need a certificate?
Yes, whole event and also presentations will be in English, thus you should be familiar with it, however we do not require any language certificate or specific language level.
What is your current Covid policy?
The hackathon will happen in person, under the current Slovak regulations. Wearing a face mask is your own choice, however, we do recommend doing so for your and others’ safety.
What if I want to take a nap?
There will be a dedicated sleeping room where no one will disturb you!
By hacking, do you refer to breaching security?
Definitely not. Hacking is a slang term for coding/ doing tech stuff. From wikipedia : The word “hackathon” is a blend of the words “hack” and “marathon”, where “hack” is used in the sense of exploratory programming, not its alternate meaning as a reference to breaching computer security.
Do I need a team to apply?
Not necessarily, but we highly encourage you to create one before coming here. It is best if you already know the people who you will be working for 24 hours with. In case you can’t find anyone, feel free to apply and we will match you up with a team at the event.
