The weekend will begin with the challenge reveal during Opening Ceremonies, coding will start immediately following opening remarks and continue until hour 24! All submitted apps will be presented, judged and awards will be presented during closing ceremonies.
Throughout the competition participants will be provided meals, snacks and yes, lots of coffee and energy drinks.
