Our HackREGINA event this Saturday, September 28th will have 3 judges, helping us decide who the best teams and apps at the hackathon are. They’ll be judging on 5 different criteria:
- Technical Skill – How difficult was the implementation of the app?
- User Experience & Design – Is the app easy to use? Does it look like time was spent in its design?
- Business Idea – Would the app sell or get used in today’s marketplace?
- Presentation – How well did the team present the idea and themselves?
- Inspiration – Do you want to see this app finished and released so you can use it?
