How do I form a team?

What if I don't know how to code?
TaroHacks is 100% FREE for everyone to participate! Hackathons are the best places to build coding knowledge in a short period of time. You don't need to have any coding experience to participate in TaroHacks. We will also be providing participants with workshops and mentors to help them out with their projects.
What can I make?
You are welcome to create any coding or computer science project that benefits your community or society as a whole. The theme for this hackathon is quite open-ended, and we're excited to see what you'll create!
How will workshops and presentations be hosted?
Before every workshop/presentation begins, we will send out a Zoom or Google Meet link out to all of the participants. We will post more details about the sign-up process as the hackathon gets nearer.
Is there a Code of Conduct?
We expect our participants to treat all our participants, mentors, and judges with respect at all times, behave appropriately and safely and follow the TaroHacks Code of Conduct (can be found in the "Resources" tab or under "Rules").
