HackKing's 5.0, the 5th Hack Kings
HackKing's is an annual 24-hour hackathon hosted by KCL Tech.
250 people. 24 hours. 1 crowned team.
Just build the coolest project you can!
When presenting, make sure to show your hack in action - we don't need to see source code :)
How well the idea solves the problem
Whatever the problem you are trying to solve may be, you want it to be as effective as possible.
How well executed the idea is
Now that you have narrowed down your idea of how you want to solve your problem, how do you put that into practice? What would be the next steps or how does your product solve this practically?
It's not the most important thing but if it doesn't look good then some people might not be as onboard. If it isn't usable then it can turn some users away.
Given the problem at hand, how technically difficult is your solution? Did it require much use of external APIs and libraries? What about certain technologies e.g. Cloud Infrastructure, Blockchain, etc
Everyone loves to be unique, but how unique is your solution really? Are you just implementing what someone else has or are you doing it differently, and even better?
Given that your solution is probably well executed, original and well suited for the problem space, how useful is it really? Will users pick it up for a bit but quickly give up on it? Or will they use it more than Social media?
