10:00AM - 12:00PMAV Specialists will be available in ILC 118 to facilitate your presentations.  Take the opportunity to familiarize yourselves with the equipment you will be using for your final presentation.
11:00AMStop coding, the judges are here! Take a break. Brush your teeth. Get ready to grab some lunch and visit with some of the judges. Finalize your app presentation.
11:30AMLunch is served. Probably something reasonably proper, since we've got guests.  Time to catch your breath, fill your tummy, and mingle with the judges, mingle with fellow contestants and mingle with the volunteers.
1:00PM - 2:30PMDemo Session - time to show off what you built to everybody. You'll have about 5 minutes (depending on total number of apps) to pitch. (ILC 118)
3:00PMAwards - the judges, having picked winners in record time, congratulate the winners and we take lots of pictures. (ILC 118)
4:00PMHaving barely made it out of the ILC, you stumble home and fall asleep still wearing your clothing and holding your laptop. You will blissfully sleep this way for about 13 hours.
