FAQs


WHAT’S THE EVENT? An opportunity to learn, collaborate, and build great things. Scanalytics is proposing a challenge for teams to develop solutions on the SoleSensor platform to be featured in the Scanalytics Marketplace. 

WHEN’S THE EVENT? The event is scheduled for end of October, and will be held over an entire weekend. Judging and awards will commence immediately after on Sunday. Participants can come and go as they please throughout the event. 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Absolutely anyone! Only caveat is that you need to register by the deadline so we can ensure adequate pizzas and pi’s.

HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED? Registrants have the option to arrive as an individual or a team. If you're looking for a team, stop by one of our info sessions before the event, otherwise we’ll match everyone up into teams the day-of. Teams must be between 2-6 people.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? There is no cost to attend the hackathon.

WHAT SUPPORT WILL BE AVAILABLE? The Scanalytics team will be on-site throughout the weekend, as well as corporate challenge representatives to provide assistance and guidance.

 


WHO OWNS THE TECHNOLOGY? Ownership remains entirely with you, we provide the platform to power it. 

WHAT SHOULD I MAKE? Easiest suggestion we can give is to walk around your house, office or favorite pastime, and think about what you could activate to make life more enjoyable, convenient or experiential. If you’re still not sure by the day-of, we’ll help you brainstorm a project that Friday night.

DO I NEED TO BUILD HARDWARE? Up to you! Many teams will be integrating with existing or altered hardware, otherwise it can be a completely software-based development.

CAN I START EARLY? You are allowed to start early, but must provide full disclosure on status before and throughout the event. Judging is based on event progress and innovation.

AM I UNDEREXPERIENCED? We don’t think so! Anyone with an idea or drive to innovate should sign up, regardless of skill level. Non-technical participants are equally welcome!

DO I HAVE TO HACK ON-SITE? Each team must have at least 50% of their members in-person each day throughout the event.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? A lot of fun, energy and development. We run around the clock so we’ll have action at all hours of the day, and plenty of games for the necessary breaks.
