FAQ

Coffee and Coding?

Well, we wanted our hackathon to be the bare bone of what it is about, we decided that the name should be coffee and coding (stereotypically).

What is a Hackathon?!?

A hackathon is an awesome event where a lot of people come together and create and invent new awesome things during 24-48 hours.

What should I bring?

Your student id, yourself and a good mood, your laptop and charger. We will provide you with internet, a table for your team and a lot of food and drinks.

What should I put in my agenda?

We are proud to announce that the event is going take place at the Launch Cafe in Groningen from the 14-15 October 2017. The event will be 24 hours approximately.

Who can participate?

Every college, university and high school student that is over 14 years of age at the start of the event is welcome to join us. You are also welcome to join us if you graduated lesser than 12 months ago.

Rules?

Yup, the MLH code of conduct. We strictly enforce it. If you want to know more about the hackathon rules and the code of conduct than click on the "register now" button at the top of the page. There are also another set of rules that are displayed at the bottom of the registration form.

Will there be a schedule?

Yes of course! We're still working on it. When it's done we will publish it on our website.

Will there be a place to sleep?

We will have a "chill room" for you to take a quick nap or just to chill out but we don't advice you to sleep there if you want a good night of sleep. If you want to use this room to take a nap we advice you to bring your sleeping bag and pillow.

What about Teams?

Teams consist out of 6 or less people, so you can also join alone but this could be pretty boring so we advice you to search for a team ;).

How can I register my team?

All teams will be registered at the hackathon. There will be some time to meet new people and search for team members.

This sounds awesome, where can I register?

At the top of the page there is a big fat "Register now" button. You can click that if you want to participate :)

My email is required?

to keep you updated we need an email, no worries we will not spam you. If it's a great success we may want to see you next year.

What are the challenges and prizes?

We're still thinking about great prizes and challenges and they will be posted on the website as soon as possible. Are you a company with a great challenge or prize? Please shoot us an e-mail at info@coffeeandcoding.nl!

Will you be giving out travel reimbursements?

Unfortunately we are unable to provide travel reimbursements this year.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to our sponsors it's absolutely free to participate. We will provide you with a table for your team, food and drinks :D and of course an unforgettable weekend!

We are proud to announce that the Launch Cafe in Groningen will be our venue for this event. The Launch cafe is a coworking place for startups and freelancers and an amazing place for events like this. The launch Cafe is a 5 min walk from the central train station of Groningen and if you you really don't like to walk you can take any bus that stops at Hereplein and from there it's a 30 second walk. If you travel by plain and land at Eelde airport you can take busline 9 or 100 (Direction Hoofdstation) and if you land at Schiphol Amsterdam you can take the train to Groningen.
