Judging a Hackathon

Greetings from day 2 of Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) Sydney winter hackathon, in the Commonwealth Bank headquarters at Darling Harbor. There four teams which have spent the weekend working on projects. They are presenting their results and I am one of three judges who are to award a prize (which is a cheap looking perpetual trophy to make the point it is not about winning).

We are listening to the people with the six projects, who are pitching to the hackers, who then decide what to work on for the rest of the weekend.

One thing I have learned is "user journey" also one team used catchable HTML5 (which did not work on one demo machine). Two teams merged to work together.
