Judging Criteria

  • Technology
    How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem that 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"?
  • Idea & Innovation
    How good is the idea? Is something new? Is an application that is already on the market and does not add anything new?
  • Learning
    Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before?
