Bring an idea that you have and form a team or go solo. You'll be able to pitch your idea to everyone at the event kickoff.
Teams form organically around the ideas that are shared. Other than what type of pizza to eat, this is one of the more challenging decisions.
You'll be surprised what you create at the end of the event. Walk away with a great experience and something you can show off.
After 24 hours of hard work, you'll present your projects. Judges will then select 3 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?
Does your project utilize a wide range of tools and technologies? Were there real technical challenges you had to overcome?
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 5 minutes for a demo where you tell us all about your project, followed by a Q/A. We recommend a quick powerpoint. We're interested in how you solved problems as well as the technologies & tools you used.
