How's it going to work?
So you've decided to participate in Pandacodium 2013. We're happy to have you.
For those of you who have never participated in a hackathon before, here's a small rundown of what happens. A bunch of people from around the world get together online and form teams. Then, when given the go ahead, these teams develop a project based on the guidelines and theme of the hackathon. They usually use an online version control system (such as Github) to commit their code to and deploy their project to a hosting provider for testing. All this happens iteratively -- they usually only have 48 hours. Once the event is over, teams present their projects and winners are chosen and awarded prizes. If everything went well, the same thing happens again next year.
