Entry Submission Requirements

All teams are required to submit the following as part of their entry submission no later than the end of the Hackathon
on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024, at 8 PM EST.

Sitecore Setup
The choice is yours as to how you install Sitecore locally for the Hackathon. There is no requirement on whether you
setup with Docker, SIF/SIA, Sifon, SIFless, SIM, or [insert creative approach]. We do however require that the
installation steps are simple, few, and require no magic to get your submission working. We encourage you to perform a
fresh install and follow your own documentation to ensure that no steps are missed. It would be unwise to try any of
these installation methods for the first time on the day of the Hackathon because so much can go wrong; do what you know
well and invest as much time as you can to be creative working on your solution.

Deliverables
Please read carefully — and thoroughly — to ensure you have not missed any of the requirements.

Code
Notwithstanding the fact that we value full creativity in your submission, we are going to be judgy here — we are
judges, after all. Once your code is pushed to GitHub, we will look for the following with no exceptions:

Cleanliness of code
Clear documentation
Adherence to Sitecore best practices (Helix)

Documentation
The documentation requirements are extremely important. If the judges are unable to get your Hackathon project running
then we can’t count it as complete. Here are items we expect to be included which must be pushed to the GitHub repo in
the readme:

  • Short YouTube video (2-3 minutes) describing your project submission purpose, setup instructions, and how to use
    it.
  • One to two pages of documentation describing your project submission purpose with screenshots of the finished
    product and installation steps with screenshots where appropriate.

Prizes

The winning teams will each receive a $150 Amazon gift card per team member, making the total $450 per team for a
three-person team. The Amazon gift cards will be emailed to the email addresses on file. If Amazon gift cards are
unavailable in the region, alternate arrangements will be made.

We will showcase your company logo and/or your team photo on this website.

  1. No purchase necessary.
  2. Must be 21 years or older at the time of entry.
  3. Additional terms, conditions, and restrictions apply.

FAQs

A. Absolutely, you can team up with any other Sitecore developer to form a team.
