General Rules for Participatants

The hackathon will be organised on the avatao platform, which is a commercial product to teach people how to build secure products. In accordance with the general rules of the OWASP Summit 2017, a dedicated learning path will be set up for all the on-site and remote conference participants free of charge. The organisers of the Hackathon will help the participants on-site, but the Hackathon will continue to be available after the conference.
