- What is the Fresh Code Rule?
All code developed as part of the Condé Nast International Hackathon must be “fresh”. Before the start of the Condé Nast International Hackathon, developers can create wireframes, designs and user flows. They can also come with hardware. But to keep things fair, all code must be written onsite at the Condé Nast International Hackathon. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries.
