Frequently Asked Questions
Who can attend CodeRED?

All students and recent graduates are welcome.

What if I am not experienced?

Don't worry! CodeRED is designed to be beginner friendly. We will be having plenty of resources, workshops and mentors to point you in the right direction.

How much does it cost?

Not a dollar! It's completely free. We'll be providing snacks, meals and drinks as well.

What if I don't have a team?

That's pretty common, you'll have some time before and at the beginning of the event to meet other participants who are looking for a team as well. We highly recommend that you team up with someone and make new friends.

How big can a team be?

A team may have a maximum of 4 people, though you can go solo too.

Would there be swag?

We know Hackathons and swag go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly so, of course there will be swag!!!

Which is older - the moon or the sun?

The moon duh... it can stay out all night. (Okay, we'll stop with the Artemis jokes now.)
