The DeveloperWeek Hackathon is a 30-hour app-building contest in downtown San Francisco - and is also the official kick-off of DeveloperWeek 2014! The purpose of the hackathon is to give developers, designers, and entrepreneurs the chance to pitch app ideas - form teams - build a prototype of their app - and present to our hackathon judges for a chance to be one of the top 3 hackathon winners who get “incubated” during DeveloperWeek.
Here are the hackathon rules:
- You can prepare wireframes, outlines, or notes but you cannot start any of your design or development until February 15th at 10 AM!
- Teams must consist of at least 1 person but at max 5 people
- Your team and your app will be judged based on 3 criteria: 1) Are you solving a real problem in an interesting way? 2) How well did you present? 3) How much progress did you make on your app?
- If you build using a sponsor’s technology then you are also eligible for the sponsor prize!
