*What if I want to take part in the hack but don’t have a team?*
Don’t worry! There are lots of registrants who don’t have a team from the very beginning. You’ll be able to find and chat to others who are looking for a team on our Discord server.

*Do I need experience to take part?*
Nope - everyone is encouraged to take part, regardless of experience or ability! Practice makes perfect.

*Who can take part?*
As long as you are over 18 and a woman or non-binary, you can take part in the hack.

*How big should a team be?*

No! The timings will be GMT, but with the hack being virtual, it’s open to anyone around the world.
