Devpost Achievements

Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:

How to enter

1.  Register each individual team member using the "Register for this hackathon" button at the top of this page.

2.  Teams should consist of 2-6 team members.  Use common sense.

3.  Use the message button to recruit additional team members.

4.  All individuals will be vetted by the OHSU Hackathon team.  All participant profiles must include a list of development skills and a minimum of one portfolio submission for consideration.  Participants not meeting this criteria will not be invited to attend this event.


Individuals should not try to circumvent the important role that OHSU Hackathon sponsorship plays.  For example, recruiters and software companies who want to get in front of the developers at our event should contact us.  Anyone trying to go around this system is working against the spirit of the event. So please don't do something lame like litter the event with flyers advertising job openings, or have your team all wear t-shirts for your rack-hosting platform, or park a food truck outside, when you can go the proper – and affordable – route of sponsorship.  If you're not sure if you're crossing the line, just contact us.
