Important Information

Do you have WIFI?

Yes. Here are the credentials:

SSID: HackHPI
Password: IPHkcaH2017

If your university uses EduRoam you can use that as well.

What if I don't have a team?

Don't worry! At the end of our opening we will have a "match making" where you can find each other based on the idea you want to work on. We will explain it in detail on Saturday.

Or you can use the #matchmaking channel in our Slack channel already to pitch your idea and find team mates :)

Teams should have a size of not more than 3-4. You can have teams with up to 5 people but if you win we can only provide 4 items.
