We've all been stuck in quarantine. The perfect opportunity for a hackathon!

QurantineHacks 2020 is a 48-hour hackathon open to everyone to participate on July 10 - 12! Our participants will work in teams or fly solo to develop their next aspiring software or hardware projects. At QurantineHacks, we believe that technology can change the world, so we’re empowering you to solve a problem in less than 48 hours. Due to the recent crisis, we will allow anyone and everyone to participate! The main theme of this hackathon is to create a project that benefits the current or future society and/or the world. The theme itself is purposely open-ended so as not to limit your creativity. Get ready to meet some fellow hackers and win some awards! We can't wait to see what you will build

Judging Criteria

  • Technical Difficulty
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount? This is the most important criterion that your hack will be judged upon for the general prizes.
  • Exceptionality
    How outstanding is the project? Does it feature complex technologies? Does it stand out from other submissions?
  • Practicallity
    Is the application ready for deployment? How realistic is it?
  • 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?
