Condor Hacks

About this event

We are having our very own hackathon! 

The purpose of a hackathon is for a programmer or group of programmers to work on a project, usually over the weekend. If you haven’t participated in any of those yet, it’s an incredible opportunity to try this type of competition out and build a portfolio-worthy project over the weekend. 

Teams of 1-4 are going to be allowed for this one, so it's your choice to either create something incredible by yourself or work on a wonderful collaborative project.

Join to get the chance to win $350 worth of prizes, get swag, and get the chance to showcase your project and do a demo in front of the judges!


Requirements:

1. You are a full-time Conestoga student or a recent graduate

2. You are a member of the Conestoga DSC (apply here)

3. Complete the individual registration


Topic: “Make students’ life at Conestoga better!” 

As Conestoga students, you have an internal experience of the college’s services and most likely have some ideas on how to improve the experience. It’s time to bring those ideas to life!


Judging criteria

  1. Student Life Impact - 40 pts
    This criterion looks at how relevant the presented solution is for the current students’ problems and challenges.
  2. Use of Google Tech - 20 pts
    Your solution must use at least one Google technology to score points in this section. We will be looking at the architecture of your project and how well it suits your use case.
  3. Solution design and completeness - 20 pts
    This is the ‘look and feel’ section. Do you have a working prototype we can play around with? How does it look? How is the user experience?
  4. Pitch - 20 pts
    After the deadline on Sunday you will get a chance to present your solution in front of our judges. You will get points based on how well you describe the problem that was solved and how your project is addressing that problem.
