FAQ

Either by car (we provide free parking) or by LRT to Kerinchi station. Other options do exist, but these are the easiest ones.
Laptop with the services provided through Web should be sufficient, but in case your gear fits into the trunk of a Myvi, go ahead. If you need a Van to transport your gear, please contact us by telephone (+603 2264 0200) to agree on the practicalities.
We provide free flow of soft drinks, coffee/tea and water.
Sure, but we will not move the demo time when you have run out of time. There will be personnel present throughout the event, so you can come and go as you need to.
”App” in this case does not refer to any particular operating system or device. It can be a web application, a mobile application (be it Android, iOS, Windows Phone), or a desktop application. And it needs to be FRESHLY coded on the day.
The signup pack will include more detailed information about the available datasets and APIs. We’ll make full API documentation available to all participants.
Anyone 16 and above can participate in this hackathon. However, if you're under 21, then you are required to inform your parents or guardians about joining the event.
