This Online-Only hackathon is open to participants around the globe who cannot be physically present to demo in-person at the Science Fair Demo Day at Grindr HQ in Los Angeles on Sep 25, 2016.


1. Demos must be functional demos: no slideshows/pure design mockups.

2. Fresh code only. APIs and libraries are fine…but not if you wrote them. Winners may have code reviewed; Every single participant must be registered on both Eventbrite ( and Devpost because that’s what we’re using for submissions/judging.

3. Teams can have up to 5 members.

4. Be excellent to each other. <3
