One of the sponsors this edition is Amazon Alexa (https://developer.amazon.com/alexa). We are excited about the opportunity for our hackers to play with some of the coolest new technology from Amazon. If you're interested in developing with Amazon Alexa API and Amazon Echo, we recommend that you create:
Major League Hacking
How innovative / new is your idea. Are you just the next generic social app or are you creating something groundbreaking new?
How difficult was this hack to be implemented. Is it just a simple website or are you solving a technical problem that nobody ever solved?
Design / UX
How is the design and the user experience of the hack. How polished does the project appear? Does it show issues?
Is it a useful hack? How wide are the applications? Is it just something that helps you or will more people use it?
How well is the presentation during the fair by the team.
