The Hackathon is an IxDA organized event meant to elevate the creative community, startup culture, and entrepreneurial spirit of Richmond.
We're bringing together designers, developers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs - in a fast paced, no holds barred competition that produces unbelievable creativity and great excitement. Participant teams produce a real and functioning application in less than 12 hours.
The winning team receives a grand prize of $2,000.00
Entry is limited to 45 participants - organized into 8 teams.
Participating teams will choose 1 of 2 problems/ideas presented by pitchmen.
Participating teams are expected to build a web/tablet/mobile application that will solve the problem/meet the idea they choose. This can be done in HTML5, iOS, any coding language, can tap into any APIs, etc. - whichever suits your fancy. What matters is that the final product is a functional application that meets the need of your team's chosen pitch.
Teams have full ownership of everything they build. Your code, your design, your product.
Teams of 5 people are allowed, and there will be no more than 8 teams. Each team member and team is responsible for bringing their own devices to work, test, and present with. Please bring your smart phone, tablet, or laptop!
Demos must be presented at the end of the day. Each team will have 5 minutes to showcase their application to judges. Judging will be based on functionality, creativity, and impact - does it solve the chosen problem? Be original! Unique and functional applications are expected.
