Over 700 students will gather for 36h of dreaming, hacking and shipping on anything and everything. All projects are welcome, mobile, hardware, web, you name it. Throughout the hackathon we'll have introductory talks for first-time hackers as well as sponsor Tech Talks to help you out with your hacks!

Hacking starts at 9:00 PM on Friday and ends at 9:00 AM on Sunday. All submissions must be made through Devpost.

Judging Criteria

  • Technology
    How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"
  • Design
    Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is.
  • Completion
    Does the hack work? Did the team achieve everything they wanted?
  • Learning
    Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before?
