We'll be judging all projects by reviewing your DevPost submissions. Your post there will be your opportunity to shine! To help you out, we wanted to provide more information and context around how we're going to be scoring the submissions.
On Devpost, describe your hack: what problem or goal does it tackle? Why did you choose to build it and dedicate your weekend to it? Is there a working demo? Can we text-in or call-in and see it in-action?
Make a video of your hack in action! Briefly explain the "why", and go straight into the demo--this is the most important part to us. Include a link to the GitHub repo as well! We like to see code.
