Frequently asked questions

PLANNING FOR THE WEEK

When does it begin and end?
+

Plan on arriving Sunday, January 23rd. The hackathon officially ends Friday evening, January 28th, but most people will stay until Sunday to party it up because . . . . it's Miami

What does the schedule look like?
+

We will have a kickoff on Sunday, where team placement will be figured out. The hacking itself takes place from Monday through Friday. The expo is on Friday.

How much does this cost?
+

The hackathon is free for you to attend, and most houses will provide food as well. However, you will be responsible for your lodging costs.

Which airport do I fly into?
+

MIA is the biggest airport to fly in. FLL is also another close option.

How do I get from the airport to the house?
+

Uber and Lyft are both pretty easy to take to wherever you need!

How do I get placed at a house?
+

Sign up on MiamiHackWeek.com to get access to the different houses! Each time a house is confirmed, it will be texted out to the list of hackers interested with a link to apply to the house.

Where will the houses be?
+

There will 10, 20, 100 houses all across Miami running their own mini hackathons, all at the same time.

AT THE HOUSE

Can I work remotely?
+

Yes! We understand that it's hard to take a week off on short notice, but luckily, most of you have remote jobs ;)

You can definitely be working remotely during the day, and be hacking away for the hackathon in the evenings.

What sort of projects will I be working on?
+

Up to you. Each house will have a different theme.

Where do I sleep?
+

We ask that everyone gets a hotel room or Airbnb near their hackathon house. If you are working late throughout the night, most houses you will have a place to crash, either a bed or an air mattress.

How are projects judged?
+

There will be a science fair style expo on Friday, where all teams will be able to show the projects they've built. Judges will be walking around, and will choose the winners.

How many hackers will be at each house?
+

It depends on the house, but it could be between 12 and 70 people.

Is there a prize?
+

Yes! There is a cash grand prize and more tba! 

What happens at the expo?
+

Team members will switch off between showing their projects and walking around looking at other projects.

Are there events during the week?
+

Yes, closer to the event we will share a full calendar to attendees.
