About this event
What should I build? We want to see new projects that can wow the crowd and have the potential to improve peoples lives. Hacks that people would use, laugh at, and potentially scale.Have fun, try to finish in time, and show us an awesome demo!
Who should attend? Junior developers looking to improve their skills, senior developers looking to jive with budding members of the community, designers of all skill-sets, and serious entrepreneurs that can add value to teams. Never built with a specific language before? Fear not, we'll do our part to have teachers on hand throughout the hackathon to help you get going with these new and needed skills.
How is it judged? We're doing things a little different this time. Say goodbye to power-points. That's right, no power-points whatsoever. To present at AngelHack you must DEMO. Period dot the end. And everyone who wants to win AngelHack will have to demo their product for at least 30 seconds. Projects will be judged on a combination of originality, technological difficulty, viability and usefulness. We want to see new ideas, ideas that are useful, ideas that solve big problems, ideas that could potentially make money and ideas that get people excited.

All code must be FRESH – that’s how we keep these things fair. Prior to the hackathon you can create wireframes, designs, and user flows. You can come with hardware. But to make things completely fair all code must be laid down at the hackathon. Other than that, most anything goes. You can work with friends in other cities and use any coding languages or open-source libraries you’d like.
