Judging Criteria

  • 1. Uniqueness(Ingenuity)
    While your idea need not be revolutionary, we will be looking for a certain element of uniqueness in the project. For example: cloning Twitter is okay, as long as you modify it in a way that solves someone's pain-point.
  • 2. Practical usecase(Impact)
    The project can create impact if it solves someone's pain point. There are many problems that we all face in daily life. You just need to observe, and you will have plenty of issues you can address.
  • 3. User Experience(Working MVP)
    It's always better to build 2 features than 5 half-baked features. In the end, at least you will have something you can show end-to-end. So make sure, that you start small, integrate independent parts, and then think of adding more features.
  • 4. Code quality & scalability
    Writing code is easy. Writing code that you can read after 6 months is hard. Aim for the latter, and you will be good to go. We don't expect you to write length documentation in the webathon, but we certainly expect that the code is readable to others.
  • 5. User Interface
    This criteria will test developer's skill to translate designs into effective UI. You don't need to create wireframes in designing tools, but think about how your website should behave on different screen resolutions, how consistent are the UI elements.
  • 6. Presentation
    Any product/service is good only if someone buys it. And for that to happen, creator should be able to present their creations. There's no loss while selling. You can only gain.
  • Brownie Points :)
    If your tech stack allows you to host your project on the internet, we will give you brownie points if you do that.
