You will submit through Devpost. Further instructions will follow on the day-of the event.
Can I submit a project I’ve already worked on?
No, you must start working on project code after hacking starts at 9am PST. Projects started before that time or have been submitted to other hackathons will be disqualified. Make sure your submission is unique to Citrus Hack!
What if I don't have a team?
If you don't have a team formed prior to Citrus Hack, we will have a channel on Discord where you can find other participants that share similar interests. We'll also be providing activities at the beginning of the event to help you form teams. Teams aren't required though, so feel free to work individually.
Do I have to hack or make a project?
Not at all! You can attend a workshop just to learn, network with fellow hackers, and participate in games and raffles. You'll be able to find the schedule on our website as we get closer to the event.
Is there an online option to attend?
Unfortunately no, Citrus Hack is in-person only.
