RE: STEMGeeks Second Hackathon
Great. The previous hackathon was a big success and we got the Hive Onboarding tool.
The first hackathon was set for 2 weeks, I am considering extending this to one month or even longer. I think 2 weeks is a good time to have enough time for a decent prototype but it does limit how much functionality is available.
I like this. One month's time is very good to even build a complete product instead of just a prototype. I remember someone did build a prototype in the last hackathon and won a prize and then that code was never touched after that. I understand that everyone have their own projects and commitments but Hackathon shouldn't be a place to make quick money just because they are popular on Hive. So, in my humble opinion, it is better to have final solutions than prototypes. Or at least 80% built and ready solutions.
- I was thinking $25k should be good. Also, it would be good to convert it to Hive and reward the winners in Hive.
- Yes that will be good.
- This can be selected based on the number of entries. I would suggest keeping 5 as a minimum number and as you mentioned, be flexible about the final number of winners.
- Two phases. In the first phase, they submit their prototypes and in the second, they submit the full working solution.
- Some members from the community as judges and also from outside if possible. If we can allocate some budget for the judging.
- Right now I don't have any idea in my mind. I will keep thinking and if I get some valuable idea. I will definitely try to participate.
Overall, I like this initiative so much and also the idea of taking this Hackathon to the open world. I guess this will create more awareness and can bring more traffic to Hive.
