You should bring a computer with the software you see fit and a camera/phone for any photographs or recording you may want to take. Keep in mind that you cannot photograph or record users while on the testing phase without their express consent.
You must register as a team, between 3-5 elements. One of the elements must be responsible for the UX.
How to create and submit a team:
Create a team and subscribe the team that you created.
If you were the one creating the team, you are the team leader. You should be able to see the designated page (example here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19PpWStZs7gBsvswrLREj3RFqq6iKBCZc/view?usp=sharing) to edit and manage your team, as well as the shareable link to invite team members directly (we strongly advise you to use this method). Invite team members or ask them to search for the team name.
If you haven't invited any team members through the link, they can still find it by searching your team name when they register for the event by the exact words you used while creating it.
