Hackthan for Nepal

Eat. Hack. Sleep. Can you build something awesome in 24 hours?

Teams of up to four hackers have 24 hours to design and build their idea. It can be anything - a website, a mobile application, or even a robot. It just needs to work when it is presented to the judges. Keep in mind whatever you are building has to touch the life of Nepalese living in Nepal or abroad in some way.

Don't know what to hack!? 

These are the hardware, languages and APIs are used the most at hackathons.

Judging Criteria

  • Originality
    Is the hack more than just another generic social/mobile/local app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
  • Technial Difficulty
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there any technical challenges to surmount when building it?
  • Polish and Design
    Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does it work as the creators say? Is it well designed?
  • Usefulness
    Is the hack practical? Is it something Nepalese people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need?
