While the term 'hackathon' can imply that finished projects need to include original ‘code’, we will be accepting solutions that do not involve any programming in an attempt to draw non-traditional hackathon participants. With that flexibility in mind, non-technical projects can include:
- Basic wireframes/design concepts for your completed project.
- Real-world feedback that tests your assumptions with actual ‘customers’ and end-users of your solution. This feedback should also validate that your stated problem(s) are pain points for your end users.
- “Go-to-market” strategies and tactics to get your solution in front of users. How will they discover and ultimately use your product?
For judging purposes, we expect to see demos of your project for software projects and in-depth PowerPoints/design mock-ups for ‘no-code’ projects. The format of these presentations is wide open - flex those creative muscles!
