  1. Do I need to pay any money to register for the Hackathon? No. You do not have to pay anything to anyone to register for any Hackathon on HackerEarth.

  2. Do I need to have any specific qualifications to be a participant in the Hackathon? If you love to code, you are more than welcome to participate in the Hackathon.

  3. How do I submit what I have made for the Hackathon? You have to develop the application on your local system and submit it to HackerEarth in a tar/zip file format and instructions to run the application and source code.

  4. Do we need to have the entire idea fully working? The idea does not need to be complete. However, the submission should be functional so that the judges can review it.

  5. How is the environment? Will your environment support any language? Will you provide any IDE and DB for us to work on ideas? You have to develop the entire software application on your local system and submit it to HackerEarth in a tar/zip file format along with instructions to run the application and source code.

  6. Does one have to be online and available for the entire duration of the Hackathon? No, one does not need to be logged in on HackerEarth or be online for the entire duration. You can develop your local system’s application based on the given themes and then submit it to HackerEarth on the specific challenge page.

  7. Since there is no specific technology mentioned, are there any restrictions on using several pre-built libraries? There is no restriction to use any language, technology stack, or libraries. You can use anything to create a web/mobile application.

  8. Do I need to give a demo of the product that I have built? If you want, you can submit a small presentation or video that demos your submission. However, it's not mandatory and only the best practice. In case you are one of the winners, you could be asked to demo your application at a physical event, details of which you will receive prior.

  9. A fully developed application needs to have a solid backend for data storage like SQL, SharePoint, etc. Since it’s online, is it acceptable to show only the prototype of it? Yes, it's excellent to submit just a prototype. If you use any database like MySQL or PostgresSQL, you can also submit a database dump along with your submission. However, you are allowed to submit just the prototype.

  10. If it is a team submission, does that mean all team members will have access to work at the same time? Yes, all team members can log in from their accounts and make their submissions to HackerEarth.

  11. Who will own the intellectual property (IP) rights to the product that I have built? The developer/developers of the web/mobile application will have all rights and own the product’s IP. However, all code needs to be in the public domain (open source) to be evaluated by the judges.
