Once more, we're calling the best university hackers to join us on July 19th & 20th. We're looking for innovators who are not afraid of rolling up their sleeves and are hungry to win the title of "Hackfest Champion". We have room for a total of 170 students, and you can apply with up to 4 students per team. We will accept only the very best teams. Competition will be fierce so choose your teammates wisely, and come ready to show us what you can deliver in just 24 hours.
Each team member will get one minute to collect as many Benjamin Franklins as possible in the Hacker Cash-omatic. The money booth is stocked full of cold hard cash, ready for the taking. Once all team members have finished their one minute in the booth, the total cash collected will be split evenly among the group.
