K20's Hackathon

A hackathon to pull the strings of my heart

Last year I was pretty bitter about the hackathon. This year, I think the event will be better. Andrew Barnes and Brad Tilton are running this event. As I understand it these are the details;

First lets go over what you’ll get out of this.

  • You will learn how to build whatever it is you’re building. So if you want to try out the new now-experience, here’s your time to shine.
  • You will likely form a team and make better bonds with those on it.
  • You might win one the five categories, if you do you’ll get $500 USD, or $5,000 USD for your team.
  • ServiceNow may feature your work in some content sent out to people who want that kind of stuff.

Now let’s go over the specifics.

How big can the teams be?1-8 people.
When does it start?May 1st.
When does it end?May 3rd.
How many teams will be named winners?5
What criteria will things be judged by?
  • Utility
  • User Experience
  • Innovation
  • Technical Difficulty

Last year I wrote up a detailed blog about winning hackathons and reviewed all the past hackathons I could find (2013-2018).

May the odds be ever in your favor.
