What is Ethsafari Hackathon?
Ethsafari Hackathon is a yearly technology event, spanning over days of non-stop technical talks, workshops, competitions, and coding. For two and half weeks straight, around 500+ participants can enjoy world-class presentations, demos, community events, and its classic two and half weeks coding competition.
Who can attend Ethsafari Hackathon?
Ethsafari Hackathon is targeted at creative minds with a hacker spirit (in the classical definition of the word). Anyone with a technical profile is welcome to apply, not only engineers (eg. web designers are welcome too).
How are applicants selected?
Ethsafari Hackathon curators aim at selecting the best, most participative and motivated, programmers and creatives. For this they rely on what candidates fill in their profiles (their pitches and personal bios) and evidence of engagement in previous editions (if applicable). CVs don't matter, please don't paste full CVs as an application pitch. What matters is your potential and your passion for technology, no matter your level of experience.
How much does it cost?
Ethsafari Hackathon is free for all selected candidates.
Can I register our company employees in bulk?
No. Candidates must register and apply individually (they are evaluated and selected individually too, see above).
Do you pay for the atendees' transportation and/or accomodation costs?
No. However, there may be discounts and other partnerships. If so, these will be announced in the months leading to the event, so make sure you follow us in one of the social networks where we're present. You can also choose to sleep in the venue. This one is guaranteed, with some caveats (see below).
Can I bring a guest to the event?
No. All attendees must apply to the event individually.
Do I have to participate in the two and half weeks of programming competition?
No. But we do encourage you to participate in something during the event, and not just passively roam around the venue. Fortunately, there are plenty of activities to choose from.
I was selected but can't attend the event, what do I do?
Please let us know. Spots are limited and it would be nice if another candidate could go instead (but no, you cannot choose who that candidate might be).
When will the schedule be available?
A detailed schedule will be available closer to the event, on our website
Will there be a live stream from the event?
Yes, live streaming will be available. The feed will be focused on the activities taking place on the main stage, such as talks and contests. When nothing is going on there, you can expect a general transmission of the event.
Will the talks be recorded?
Unless the speaker states otherwise, every talk will be recorded and available online in the weeks following the event.
Is there food and beverages at the event?
Food and drinks will be provided free for all attendees. We'll be providing lunch and dinner daily, and there will be random snacks and beverages available 24/7.
