Since Hack This Fall 2024 is a community-driven hackathon, unfortunately we will not be able to support you with travel.
Kindly open the #organizer-ticket on our Discord Server and let the organizers know as soon as possible, so that we can try to make necessary next steps.
On both nights (9th Feb & 10th Feb) we will have a supervised sleeping space for hackers to rest and sleep at the venue. We have arranged a separate sleeping area for girls, clean washrooms, personal hygiene and sanitary kits, etc. We recommend bringing your own blanket if you need one. We want to make sure that all hackers feel comfortable and safe at the hackathon.
There will be meals served on the respective days to everyone who checks-in
