Judging Criteria

  • Originality
    Is the hack more than just another generic social app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
  • Polish/Design
    Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well-designed?
  • Technical Vigor
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Does it showcase technical talent? Is the depth of implementation within the 24 hour time limit impressive?
