AUHack 2019

Expo

Expo

After hacking ends all teams will expo their projects. Here judges and fellow students will have time to test each others projects. The expo will be at your tables where you have worked throughout the weekend.
Each team will be visited once by a pair of judges within a time interval of 30 minutes. A note will be put on your table around noon to let you know when the judges will arrive. Thus you will have some time to eat lunch and watch other hacks when the judges are not at your stand.

Devpost

You must all share your projects on devpost before 11:30. Remember to add any sponsor prizes that you are competing for.
If you have any problems, please contact us at the information desk.

Best AUHack19 Criteria


Technology

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"?

Design

Was thought put into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about HCI (is it easy to use or does it use a cool interface?).

Completion

Does the hack work? Did the team achieve everything they wanted?

Learning

Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before? If a team which always does virtual reality projects switch up and try doing a mobile app instead, that exploration should be rewarded.

The hack or the idea behind it should be unique and interesting. This can range from new and crazy spins on known ideas to completely outlandish ideas.

Funny
