When joining HackYeah you can deal with any task you want. This might seem a little hard, but it gives you the opportunity to work on the idea in your area of expertise.
You can work on one or multiple tasks and you can be a member of one or several teams at once!
What’s more, you do not need to decide what task you’re working on before the hackathon.
There are two kinds of tasks: MAIN and PARTNERS TASKS.
Main tasks consist of three OPEN categories, which means you only get the topic and it’s totally up to you in which direction you’ll develop your project. We don’t give any guidelines or one particular technology, however, there will be mentors for each of those categories who can help you with some ideas.
The open categories for 2019 are:
We do not ask for the rights to the solutions from Main Tasks.
The HackYeah Partners always prepare various special tasks based on their current needs – whether open or one-solution tasks. Working on them is a superb opportunity for you and a huge step in your career.
Make sure to check each tasks terms as they will specify what is needed to successfully complete a challenge.
Each task has its own judging criteria. Make sure to read through carefully before you start working on any of them.
Our judges will evaluate each Open Task submission in five categories:
- idea – how creative has the group been? Did the team come up with a new approach, or followed existing patterns? Does it do something new and unique? 30%
- technical aspects – How technically impressive was the solution? Is it demo-ready? 30%
- design – How well is it designed? Is the design different from what has been done many times? 20%
- relation to task category – Does it contribute to the chosen category? Does it have social or business potential? 10%
- wow! factor – surprise the judges with the way you work, your work ethic, something unique about the project 10%
Each Partner Task has its own unique criteria for evaluation. Once more details about these tasks are published, here you will find all the necessary information to prepare yourself for solving them.
The official platform to upload the tasks is HACKEREARTH unless a particular task specifies otherwise.
If you have any problems using Hackerearth check our FAQ.
