Rules

  1. It's your hackathon. You can work on anything you like, in any way you like, if you don't want to be part of the contest.
  2. Team size. Teams can have no more than 6 members.
  3. Fresh code. None of your code should exist before the hackathon, and the code must be developed on site. Teams may plan ahead of time, however.
  4. Time allowed. Coding will start at 8 am on Saturday and continue until 3 pm on Sunday.
  5. Frameworks. You can use any language, frameworks, platforms, or libraries you wish. We have a strong preference for open source software, but this is not a requirement.
  6. Prize categories. There will be 4 categories: Best execution, Best idea, Best teamwork, and Best presentation. There will be prizes.
  7. Judging criteria. To compete, you must deliver a working app or product, and a 4 minute demo or presentation. You will be scored on originality, functionality, impact, teamwork, and presentation.
  8. Small print. By taking part in the event, you agree to allow Agile Scientific and the Oil & Gas Authority to include mention of your participation in the event, and to appear in photos and video of the event.
  9. Smaller print. Agile Scientific and the Oil & Gas Authority make no claim over intellectual property generated during the event. Your work belongs to you and your team.
  10. Smallest print. Agile Scientific reserves the right to change the rules before the event starts, and is the sole arbiter of rule interpretation should disputes arise.
