Canada's Largest Hackathon - University of Waterloo
Welcome to Hack the North, Canada’s biggest hackathon. 1,000 students from around the world come together at the University of Waterloo to experiment, connect and create in 36 hours. We hope you're as excited as we are for an awesome weekend! After the Friday night kickoff, all teams are allowed to begin working on their apps. You can then submit your app using the above Submissions tab (which will appear after you hit the Register button). All submissions must be in by 9:00 AM Sunday morning (Sept 18).
Once hacking ends we will schedule you for a short demo to a panel of 3 judges.

How useful is this demo based on the problem they are trying to solve?
How good is the visual design and interaction experience?
Are you blown away by what you see?
The potential for your hack to become a company/startup will receive no special consideration. You are not allowed to use powerpoint/slides during judging, you must demo what you made.
