How to Survive (&Own) GlobalHack VI

GlobalHack VI is right around the corner! Before we get too carried away, here are some pointers on how to survive your first Hackathon.

  1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
    Know the purpose behind the hackathon you’re attending. Have some sort of checklist prior to the event. Make sure to have a manageable scope, so you don’t end up biting more than you can chew.

  2. TAKE BREAKS
    Don’t overwhelm yourself. It’s okay to walk away and get distracted every so often. Know your limits and sleep when you’re burnt out.

  3. EAT
    No one likes to be surrounded by someone who is hangry. Fuel up and stay hydrated. Make sure to have several snacks with you at all times.

  4. HAVE FUN
    It’s important to remember to enjoy your time and meet new people. Do not get so caught up with winning. Make the most of it!

  5. STEP BACK AND RECAP
    Take some time and review what you learned. Write down your ideas and share your thoughts with the world.
