Bring an idea that you have and the skills you are looking for. You'll be able to pitch your idea to everyone at the event kickoff around 12:30 on Saturday.
Teams tend to form organically around the pitched ideas. You can also go solo if you'd like. There is no limit to members on a team!
Hack away! All types of projects are encouraged.
After 24 hours of hard work, you'll present your projects to everyone. Judges will then select some winners to take home some awesome prizes.
Is the project new and something that hasn't been attempted before? How does this approach a unique solution to a problem?
Subjective and buzz-wordy, huh? That's what makes it fun :) We know you have something up your sleeve that's going to knock our socks off!
Did your team successfully execute your project concept? Is it usable? Does it work? Is it well designed? Is the user experience smooth?
You'll have 2-3 minutes for a demo to tell the judges about your project, followed by a Q/A. We're interested in the problems you solved, API's you leveraged, technologies used, and lessons learned. We recommend a quick powerpoint.
We encourage and applaud interdisciplinary projects fueled by eclectic teams with diverse backgrounds.
