Divisions at ignition hacks

DIVISION SIGMA

For beginner/first-time Hackers, Division Sigma is the challenge stream for you! Hackers will team up to participate in a series of workshops, followed by short tasks, called "Proofs", which are graded by the judges. By the end of Ignition Hacks, Hackers will have created a final project and the winners will be the team with the highest overall score on each "Proof".

Frequently asked questions

What is a hackathon?


A hackathon is an event dedicated to gathering both aspiring and experienced computer programmers to work upon and create a product, based on a given question or theme. This key question or theme is what diversifies hackathons from one another. A typical hackathon ranges from a 24 to 72 hour event, filled to the brim with immersive workshops and guest speakers. During this time, participants use a combination of their newfound knowledge along with past experiences to come up with a product. In a hackathon, participants can decide to work in teams or individually. Finally, prizes are offered to participants with the best projects at the end of the event.




Who can participate?

How many people can be on one team?
