Sounds pretty fun. It is 50$ for students, $75 early bird.

What to Expect

On Friday night people pitch (present) their ideas in a fast inspiring
60 seconds elevator pitch, giving a rapid overview about the idea, why
it ticks, as well as the needed resources. (Yes, 60 seconds. Don’t
worry, we’ll help you how to prepare for it) There can be as few as 10
pitches or as many as 100, we keep on pitching until everyone is done!
We then do a simple vote of everyone’s favorite 2 or 3 to narrow down
the ideas. Individuals then gather around the remaining ideas to
discuss feasibility, and identify what they need as far as skill sets
and resources to get to work. People are free to work on any idea that
interests them that they feel they will have a value add for.
Teams continue to work on their projects throughout Saturday July 9th.
By Sunday the 10th, teams should have prepared a working prototype/
product (and perhaps a presentation) to show to a panel of experienced
judges in short demo.
