Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at a hackathon?

Participants (“hackers”) spend 24 hours working in teams of 4 people to build or code projects (“hacks”) they’re excited about. There are workshops, food, swag, and buckets of coffee to guide you along the way. You bring your ideas, and we give you everything you need to make them come to life.

What do people normally make?

Common areas of focus include iOS or Android apps, web apps, and hardware hacks. Just make sure you align with our theme this year on Campus-Hack.

What do you mean by "Campus Hack"?

We pretty much invented the word "Campus Hack" from "Life Hack", which means hacking and making lives easier and better. So, we define the theme of E.C. Jamming 2017 to be "Campus Hack" and thereby encourage participants to develop projects that can enrich or simply make campus lives better!

Some typicial ideas may be:
  • Tracking traffics in different canteens on campus
  • Easier communication with classmates
  • Rating events around campuses

Do I have to know how to code to attend?

Nope! We’ll have lots of resources — including workshops and a bonus system — to help non-programmers to make use of their own expertise.

What if I don’t have a team or idea?

Not to worry, most people don’t! We have time for you to meet teammates and start thinking through your ideas before the event starts. You can also join our pre-event workshops to know more about other potential candidates.

What should I bring?

You should bring anything you’d need for a productive and healthy weekend: laptop, charger, deodorant (!), change of clothes, etc. You won’t need food or drinks; we’ve got you covered there.

I don’t find my question here!
