First Time Hacker!
Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
Is the project original? Have you never seen an idea like this before? Does the project go beyond traditional rules, patterns, and/or definitions? Does the project demonstrate progressiveness and imagination? Is the new idea meaningful?
How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem 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"?
Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before?
Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are.
