About this event

Hackademics is a free two days event where students and young professionals can build an application related to education. Our event is open to both programmers and non-programmers as long as they can present their ideas by the end of the two days, however programmers with a complete application have better chance of being selected for a spot and convincing our judges.

You've got 32 hours to complete your app, starting August 1 at 10am. You can work on the concept of your project before the Hackademics begins by whiteboarding, conducting user interviews, or hand-drawing interfaces. However, you are not allowed to start writing code (or creating digital designs if your application requires graphic assets) until the competition begins. The one exception is if you've written a publicly available package that you'd like to use in your application. This special case is only allowed if the package does not provide the majority of the functionality for your application, as judged by the Hackademics organizers. If you're unsure about your situation, please reach out to us in advance.

Our expert judges will pick the winners. We will take the apps and give them to a group of expert judges to pick the top 3 winners.

Apps will be judged based on usefulness, creativity, and completeness. They will not be given specific scores for each of these attributes, but rather expert judges will be asked to use these criteria when picking their 5 favorite apps.

Teams are made up of 1-4 people and must register for the Vietnam Hackademics before it begins.You can participate even if you know a sponsor or one of the judges - we will do our best to make sure no nepotism takes place.

Feel free to use packages that other people have written. We also encourage you to use third-party APIs and other web services. Code will be hosted in a Github repo which we create. We'll send you access information before the Hackademics begins, and you should push progress regularly throughout the competition.

You maintain ownership of all code you submit and can release it under an open source license or keep it private after the competition. There is no purchase necessary to enter the competition.

Teams that break any laws or violate the TOS of other websites will not be eligible for judging.
