 As mentioned earlier, the number of people on a team should be between 2-5 individuals. Some people will have come together and already be part of a team; however, there will be a number of individuals who are looking for others to join in their pursuit of learning/​hacking. Provide a space for people to share/​market their ideas and the people that they are looking to join their team (e.g., we need front-end developers). This should be done somewhat early on the first day. As mentioned earlier, the number of people on a team should be between 2-5 individuals.

You will be allowing 3-4 minutes for each team to present their applications/​hacks to the judges. Have some sort of process where you gather team names/​members. Encourage people with smaller teams to consider working with other teams.
