Not interested in being on a team and competing, but would like to attend and see the outcome and vote on the winner?

Register here:


The submission requirements are very relaxed. Send in a short response on what you are planning to create that day in 12 hours. You are open and encouraged to build modules and what you need ahead of time and be able to prepare yourself for success. The competition is all about not only the product you have envisioned and created, but additionally how much you have been able to build that day. The more you can build to what you orginally spec'ed and share with the group the better chance you have to win.
