Judging Criteria

  • Core - LEARN
    Focus on picking up new skills throughout the weekend, both soft and technical. Learn from your teammates - you'll want to articulate this during your demo and add it to your toolkit for the future!
  • Core - BUILD
    Focus on building something amazing that both your team & others can be proud of. A solid project sounds awesome, is useful for certain applications, and solves a problem well!
  • Core - SHARE
    Focus on nailing your presentation and sharing what you've learnt and built with others. If you've made some silly mistakes you're not proud of, make sure others don't do the same! Get us excited for your 24-hours at the event!
