The ETHChicago Hackathon is a three-day builder and creative IRL event where participants compete to win bounties sponsored by our partners. Bounties consist of tying together new technology in the blockchain space, innovating and learning from each other about existing blockchain tools, or solving real-world use cases with the unique properties of decentralized technology.
Your ticket should be sent via email from "[email protected]" with the subject line "Here is your ticket!"
Follow the instructions in the email to obtain your electronic ticket. It is recommended to do this before arriving to the event. Pro tip: Take a screenshot of your ticket to easily present regardless of wifi or cellular availability.
Present yourself at the event in Willis Tower. If you registered online, your name has already been registered with building security and you need to check in with them when you arrive.
We have community docs with useful resource links, starter kits, and other resources. Feel free to also take advantage of the workshops, talks, and office hour events at the hackathon.
