Do we choose, suggest problem(s), or give them freedom to invent?
It is encouraged that you provide some problem questions for your dev track to help students come up with ideas.
Who will own resulting code in the hackathon?
The teams will own the code. You will be able to recruit the teams. Code will all be open sourced.
What kind of merchandise can you produce, and where would it appear?
We are going to produce a tshirt for the event with all the sponsors. We can also have whatever merchandise you send including NuBits tshirts, stickers, etc.
How prominently would NuBits be featured in the event?
Nubits would be featured along with the other sponsors and developer tracks. Nubits would be in the after video, on the website, on the marketing material, with banners and whatever additional merchandise you want at the event and with a custom prize and judge spot. It will be a great way to get awareness with students in Montreal who are some of the best in the country and many of whom are from Toronto, Montreal and globally so it will be great for recruitment
Have you created leaflets before?
We have an in-house design team for pamphlet designs and can help you with this.
