  • Every Saturday morning at 06:00 in Taipei
  • Every Friday at 6:00 pm EDT / 3:00 pm PDT in the US

You may work in teams of up to 5, and you are welcome to submit as many projects as you want for 48 hours. The submission deadline is also at the same time globally, with these local times:

  • Every Sunday at 20:00 UTC

Although each event runs for 48 hours, please be sure to get enough sleep. In fact, we scheduled this length so that you can work at a comfortable, low-stress pace over the weekend. You can also check out this link for additional resources for this weekend. We look forward to seeing your creativity in action!
