Q: Where is it taking place?
A: It is in room 364 in the College of Media & Communication at Texas Tech.
Q: Must I have a team, or can I register as an individual and join up with a time at the event?
A: You may register as an individual and get joined with a team during the Shout Out.
Q: Do I have to be a programmer to participate in the Appathon?
A: No. In addition to coders, winning teams need people who are skilled at design, good with strategic thinking, and smart about usability (UX).
Q: May I bring my own computer for the competition?
A: Yes, you should bring your own computer, because computers are not provided. All that is provided is WiFi over Tech’s TTUnet network, electricity, workspace, and some food.
Q: Are we allowed to bring resources, and/or use online resources? I have my own cook books I’d like to bring, and a couple of other hand books (for functions) if possible.
A: You may bring books with you.
Q: Is the competition going to provide the Apple license, or are we developing for Android, or Windows phones, or is this a general application competition?
A: The Appathon does not provide any license, and the competition is platform agnostic. However, you will need to demonstrate your app in some way; and judges take into consideration cross-platform design.
Q: I did not get signed up before the deadline. Can I sign up at the event?
A: Yes. You will have to bring a valid student ID, and you may not receive all the same incentive prizes afforded to those who registered in advance.
