Open Source ERP is the global collegiate and professional hackathon where some of the brightest and most talented students, mentors and professionals come together to drive and create new solutions for existing Open Source ERP problems for the Agriculture, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Distribution, Hospitality and Non-Profit industries.
We are an inclusive focused hackathon that promotes diversity in all its forms. Attendees from all backgrounds, genders, and geographies are welcome.
There are no age restrictions to attend the hackathon. In case you are under 18, your parents/legal guardian should contact the hackathon to request a waiver authorizing you to attend the hackathon and submit their plan for your attendance and transportation to and from the hackathon.
Official Open Source ERP staff or committee members are not eligible to compete for a hackathon prize. They may however assist teams as mentors or volunteers during the coding/development phase.
All teams should have a team name, and be registered with Devpost.com
The Devpost team page listing should have the following:

When the hackathon ends at least one member from each team will meet with the code review team for a brief review of their submission and to confirm that the team’s Devpost page has been correctly updated. Applications will be spot checked by code reviewers. All the projects selected by the judges as finalists will be code reviewed to confirm that the code is original work created at the Hackathon.
