The Rules

You can start coding ahead of the hackathon or at the hackathon.

- Use What You Know

Participants are free to use any tools that they know, in order to help them code.

- Coding Rules

There will be identical but separate awards for teams that started coding before the hackathon as well as teams that started coding at the hackathon. However, some or all of the coding must take place at the hackathon, in order to be eligible for the awards.

- Try to Use Our Sponsor's APIs

Although not mandatory, participants are encouraged to use our platform sponsor’s technologies.

- Intellectual Property

Participants have full ownership of what they build during the Code for the Kingdom hackathon and are free to do with it as they wish. If you build as a team and the project lead wishes to keep IP, then your intentions to keep IP must be shared with the team before work on the project begins. If you build as an individual, the IP is all yours.

- Finish on Time

Participants must submit their project by the submission time on Sunday afternoon. No late submissions will be accepted.
