How can I be involved?

We need:

  • REMOTE: You do NOT need to register. Please submit the demo submission form directly

  • Demo Audience Demo day is open for all, even non-hackathon participants -- they should register here

  • Sponsors: you make the world go round. Please help us keep this event a nonprofit. Email us at nirant [dot] kasliwal @gmail [dot] com
