Rules & Requirements
Registration. Only registered teams will be only to compete. Participants must register as a team or individual and each group can be composed of 3 members maximum. Deadline for registration is August 15, 2012
Languages & Tools. Applications may be assembled using any mix of programming languages, application frameworks, and development tools. Participants are expected to bring the necessary tools to build their competition entry. Internet access via WiFi will be provided.
Hackathon Procedure. In this event, participants will be given six hours (1pm and must complete by 7:00pm) to develop a web app on the theme to be given that day. If the web app is not finished by the allotted time, the team should be able to explain how they would implement the technology for the unfinished parts, and how they intend to implement it technologically. Incomplete parts or projects may be represented by wire-frames or other plan documents.
No Offsite Development. All development must be performed on-site between the aforementioned start and end times for the event. We don’t allow teams to re-purpose an existing app, add a feature, then flog their badly disguised demo as a hack.
Presentation. No Powerpoint! Nothing kills hackathon spirit quicker than watching teams present a functional hack. “There are those who sell and those who create. Make something.”
Judging. The web apps will be evaluated according to Quality of Software Development, User Interface, User Experience, Innovation, Ambition and Quality of Pitch. Teams will have a maximum of (3) minutes to demonstrate their running application to the judging panel and (2) minutes is allotted for the judges’ questions about each app. Deliberation will commence after the presentations, and those who emerge victorious will be handsomely rewarded starting at 11:00 PM.
Prizes. WebGeek DevCup Trophies, Smart Phone and Swags from Smart DevNet, 3 BlackBerry Playbook from RIM, 3 BlackBerry Smartphone from RIM, AWS Credits From Amazon Web Services, The Lean Startup by Eric Ries from PayrollHero, AppSumo 100 USD Credits & Mint’s Original Marketing Plan from Noah Kagan, Apple iPod Nano 16GB (Graphite) 6th Generation from Iron.io, Atlassian: 10 user, 12 month OnDemand instance (worth $720) with JIRA, GreenHopper, Bonfire, Bamboo, Confluence and Team Calendars.
