Sponsors and donations

BayHac is free to attend. We rely on the generous donations of individuals and sponsoring companies to supply the location, equipment, and food. To donate, please contact Dan Burton ( AT gmail DOT com).

Is this a scam to steal my intellectual property?

BayHac is not that kind of hackathon; there is no competitive coding element here. It is only a "hackathon" in the sense that a group of Haskellers will gather to hack on various projects.

See our /Intellectual_Property_Policy

What will BayHac be like?

We will strive to fulfill the /hopes of our attendees.
