Here's some guidance on preparing for the event.

At Project:Hack 20 there will be tons of support. Data scientists, Power Platform experts and domain subject matter experts will help to guide you throughout your journey. They will also help to guide you towards delivering the perfect pitch.

Data and computer science students are also welcome.

In order to ensure that people only book who intend to come to the event, we will be charging a fee. All ticket proceeds, less VAT and platform fees, will be donated to charity which is to be decided.

Please note that platform fees are non-refundable (Eventbrite policy).

Your laptop, access to any software that you are likely to need and bucket loads of enthusiasm.

We'll do our best to accommodate everyone, however there is a cap of 200, so first come first serve.

All content developed at the hackathons are to be open-sourced as this is the essence of the community. We strongly believe in collaboration.

Purely for the administration of this event, future events and any agreed follow up actions. It will not be used for any other purposes.

A key part of the hack is to build momentum across the community and inspire people. We would like photographs and videos for social media and marketing. But if you would prefer not to be involved then please contact us.

We do not permit the use of pre-made software at the hackathons, as this defeats the point of the hackathon. We are revisiting this and will update in due course within our hack policy.
