Judging Criteria

  • Technical
    We want to see people build something over just presenting an idea, so we'd love to see how functional it is!
  • Challenge
    We're excited to see people learn something new, be it hardware, webdev or even knitting. Please share how you challenged yourself and mistakes you made so we can all learn from you!
  • Share
    Helping others learn! Letting us know of common pitfalls, tools that would help us do similar things and generally just helpful advice. You can do this as part of your demo, or implement it as a core part of your project.
