You can continue to work on your projects during the remainder of the night but please submit a video and Github repo link of your hack to DevPost by 10:00 am on September 28th. Judging via DevPost will include all conference members, and winners will be announced at the close of the conference. We have four categories available for prizes and encourage you to form teams to win!

  • What can we do to prepare?
    It’s really important to install NativeScript on your machine and get it up and running, and possibly learn about how NativeScript and Angular 2 work together by working through the Getting Started Guide for NativeScript using Angular 2.

You can also join the NativeScript Slack channel in the #hackathon room where we will have experts ready to field questions.
