Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Product Thinking: Usefulness of the project in a real-world scenario. Completeness of the features implemented.
  • UI/UX: The overall look, layout, color usage, and positioning in the application.
  • Code: Quality (clean code, proper naming conventions, use of linter); use of best practices.
  • Completeness of the article: The blog should cover all aspects of your project. What inspired you to create this project? What problem does the project address? How did you build it?
  • Comprehensibility: Try to avoid esoteric jargon in your article. Use simple language to convey your thoughts.

Hackathon Best Practices

  • 📹 If possible, share a demo (video format is better) of your final project.
  • 🔐 If possible, share login demo credentials.
  • 📝 Explain in your article why and how you used MindsDB.
  • 💡 Don't be afraid to write a lengthier article! It's better to cover all the aspects of your project rather than leave some features outside!
