Judging Criteria

  • Awesomeness (50%)
    We are looking for techniques that no one has ever thought of. Are you providing a good solution to a new problem?
  • Open-source/collaboration (20%)
    We encourage you to develop an app that can easily be used by others. Does it live on GitHub/ bitbucket? Is it open? Rather than reinventing the paperclip, did you leverage other great techniques that already exist?
  • Teamwork (20%)
    We encourage you to have colorful teams. As such we will give points for teams that are not solely formed of coworkers. After all, we want to use this time to make new connections too.
  • Learning (10%)
    Which technologies/ APIs/ products/ methods did you use, that you did not know before?
