How The T&S Hackathons Work

We're a volunteer-driven program bringing together passionate individuals around the world for the purpose of protecting users no matter where they roam online.

Acting as individuals

Participants take part as a private individual. Any statements, ideas, and views are their own and do not represent a company or organization.

Chatham House Rule

The T&S Hackathon is off the record. Participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.

Knowledge, not secrets

The T&S Hackathon is for sharing ideas, trends, and non-proprietary information. Sharing anything confidential or similar is strictly forbidden.

Driven by values

All participants agree to a code of conduct and a set of values set forth by the organizers. These include diversity, equity, inclusion, courage, curiosity, and fun.

Want to sponsor or host a T&S Hackathon? Let's chat.
