Sponsors will offer prizes to the best teams, plus special prizes to be defined.
How Does it work
All hackathon participants meet on Saturday morning (18 April). The hackathon sponsors outline the themes for the hackathon, this year all under the umbrella of #android4everyone, and the prizes associated to each theme. Participants pitch their ideas for development. (The themes are also released in advance of the hackathon so that participants have the chance to pre-plan their ideas). Everyone divides into teams and, for the rest of Saturday, overnight, and most of Sunday, works on developing building the ideas into full fledged, operational solutions. Sunday evening, work stops and each team presents their solution to the judges and all of the participants. Sunday evening after 5pm the judges award the winner and runner-up prizes for each theme category.  You can see more detail in the hackathon rules . FYI, participants must bring their own hardware (i.e. laptop, PCs, mobile devices, extension cords, etc.)
