We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably stick to these (definitely read them!)

1. Fresh Code

We all start coding at the same time. It's cool to work on design beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.

2. Code Review

Winning teams may be subject to a code- review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

3. Ownership and IP

You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that.

4. Team Size

No more than five people.

5. Submissions

Each hackathon has its individual YouNoodle.com page where projects need to be submitted by the designated time. You'll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that.

6. Demos

You'll have 2 minutes to demo the functionality of your project and talk through your ideas and 1 minute for Q&A from judges.

7. Be cool to your fellow hackers!


How is the Hackathon judged?

Projects will be judged based on the following criteria with a total of 5 points per criteria:


How fundable is this idea? Is there potential for a sustainable business model?


How well was the project executed and explained? Did it work?


Beyond design, was the end-to-end user experience for the solution considered?


How original, creative or unique is the idea?


How scalable is this solution? Will it make an impact?
