The hackathon is a free, open kind of hackathon, where in anyone can form a team and build or work on any hack.It may be mobile app, web app, desktop app, a super efficient script, firefox extension or a command line tool or whatever which makes life better or worse!It will be spread over two days filled with mentors, short sprint speaker sessions, final checks, feedback loops and a final judging round.A team size can be between one to three people. While we do allow single member teams, we do suggest no one works along. Collaboration is a lot of fun! Mentors and judges will be arranged in such a way that the representation will be equal from FSFTN side, MIT campus side and the general community side as in from the industry.
