I NEED HELP WITH CHALLENGEROCKET!
HOW TO REGISTER TO CHALLENGEROCKET?
- Register to the platform
- Register to our hackathon — HackYeah 2020 Worldwide
- Remember, only team leader (a person who will upload your project) needs to register to ChallengeRocket.
CAN I CHANGE THE MEMBERS OF THE TEAM?
Yes! As long as system is open and works, team leader can edit your crew members – which means that you can change the crew even after uploading your project. Only team leader can do this.
CAN I ADD NEW MEMBERS TO THE TEAM?
Yes! Your team leader adds the crew members during uploading the project – he just needs to type members’ data and Discord ID’s. Then, as long as system is open and works, team leader can edit your crew members, which means that he can also add a new member. Only team leader can do this.
CAN I REMOVE SOMEONE FROM MY TEAM?
Yes! As long as system is open and works, team leader can edit your crew members, which means that he can also remove someone. Only team leader can do this.
CAN I BE IN MORE THAN ONE TEAM?
Yes! Your team leader adds the crew members during uploading the project - just make sure that your team leader typed your data and Discord ID.
CAN I CHANGE THE NAME OF OUR TEAM?
Yes! Your team leader types the name of a team during uploading the project. Then, as long as system is open and works, team leader can edit the name of your team. Only team leader can do this.
WHEN SHOULD I UPLOAD THE TASK?
The deadline passes at 10 AM on Sunday. Sharp! But… don’t leave it for the last moment, the platform is rock solid but imagine a lot of people will try to upload their solutions all at once… It might lead to an accidental DDOS attack.
Please remember, that you have to create your Discord account before uploading the project (Discord ID’s are required).
IN WHAT FORMAT SHOULD THE PRESENTATION BE PREPARED?
Prepare it in any program you want, but please save it in the PDF format. Not all Judges will have PowerPoint, keynote or whatever you use and all of them will be able to see PDF file.
HOW TO DO THE PRESENTATION OF THE PROJECT?
Make it a short PDF file, it can be done in PowerPoint, keynote or anything else. Make sure to use any mock-ups, screenshots you have, describe your idea briefly but with all the details you believe are important, let it be an online pitch of your project.
CAN I SUBMIT ONE PROJECT TO MORE THAN ONE CATEGORY?
It is not allowed to submit one project to more than one category.
WHAT TO PUT INTO THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION?
It should be a short description (more of 3 paragraphs than 3 pages). Tell the judges what is the problem you are solving, how you want to solve it, how is the project supposed to work, don’t tell them the story of the world cause they won’t have time to read it all.
HOW LONG SHOULD BE THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION?
It should be rather short (let’s say 3 paragraphs max). Remember that the Judges have to evaluate plenty of projects, so they don’t have the time to read your 5-page essay ?
IN WHAT LANGUAGE SHOULD I DESCRIBE THE PROJECT?
Do it in English, please! Some of the judges do not speak Polish, so they won’t be able to evaluate your project if you do it in Polish, unless the task partner prefers Polish - see task subpage.
HOW SHOULD I UPLOAD THE SOURCE CODE OF THE PROJECT?
Please put it all in one repository that can be checked out online (GitHub, Bitbucket, Gitlab, etc), if your code consists of few modules (API, web, mobile) you can place them in separate folders.
Please make sure, that you allowed Judges the access to the repository. Your repository settings should allow us to review the content :)
HOW LONG SHOULD BE THE VIDEO ABOUT THE PROJECT?
Don’t make it too long - 3 minutes is a maximum of how much a judge can spend on watching it. Make it an awesome ad of your project, not a story of the universe (not that the history of the universe is not interesting… it’s just that the Judges didn’t come here to hear it ?
WHAT TO ADD FOR MY PROJECT TO LOOK GOOD?
Add anything you have: mock-ups, simulations, sketches, prototypes, screenshots, etc. Let the Jury see the full picture of your project!
IF YOU HAVE A DEMO…
Please remember to upload it with an example passes because the Judges need to have access to it.
