How the Modex Online Hackathon Works

How to Apply

The Modex Online Hackathon competition is only open for students enrolled at the University of Economic Studies in Bucharest.
In order to apply, all you have to do is register on dev.modex.tech and create a team, entitled ASE – (team name), so that the judges can identify and review your work. After the team name is set, you can start inviting your team members to join, so that you can work together. They have to be registered on the platform, as well.
After creating your team on the Modex Platform, you need to decide on the project you would like to build, which has to be in line with one of the general themes of the hackathon (financial, legal or statistics).
When all that is done, send an email to [email protected], specifying the team you are part of, the team members and the project you would like to build for the competition. In case you change your mind or experience any difficulties in building your web app, please send us an email and the Modex team will guide you along the way.
You’re set to go! You can now start working on your project and get the most out of your chances to win the big award.

Awards Criteria

The main criteria for evaluating your project are innovation and technical approach.
You can use any web app technology (PHP, Java, Go etc), as long as the project enrolled in the competition is finalised.
While developing your project, you need to publish regular commits in the source repository. Here’s how you can do that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erUZsK2AkhQ&feature=youtu.be
The final version of the project needs to be sent to [email protected] by the 18th of January, at 18:00, along with a PowerPoint presentation showcasing the general app idea, use case and necessity on the market.
The jury will analyse the live version of the app each team has built, so, once you are finalised, please send an email at [email protected] with the live app. If you do not have a hosting system you can use, please write to us in advance and the Modex team will help you with that.

Awards Ceremony

The three winners of the competition will be announced a few days after closing the competition, at the end of January 2019. The award ceremony will be organized in partnership with USAS and the University of Economic Studies in Bucharest.
Each of the three winning teams will have the opportunity to present the projects in front of the large audience.
Comment: All participants in the competition will get to keep IP ownership of their projects. Modex is supporting talented developers and creativity, while encouraging students to build innovative web solutions.
