Rules are important to run a safe and fair hackathon!
Please read the full set of them in our Terms & Conditions. We have summarised a few important ones for you below:
Use your real name. Everyone should set their real name (first and last name) as a nickname on this platform. That makes it a whole lot easier for crew members to know which hackathon location you signed up for or which team you are on.
Be nice to each other on this platform and in the hackathon in general. We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, creed, colour, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, physical appearance, body size, disability, or marital status. We do not tolerate harassment on our platforms in any form.
Use your time and energy to hack solutions to the Galileo Hackathon, not to make the world a worse place. Activities promoting or related to alcohol, tobacco, religion, politics, intolerance, violence, firearms, pornography, obscenity, gambling, or illegal drugs are explicitly excluded from the hackathon. Just don't. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate on our platforms.
Everyone is welcome. We welcome all participants regardless of race, creed, colour, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, physical appearance, body size, disability, or marital status
