As an experienced Hackathon participant, I always find myself stressed at some point of the competition. And in general this is the decisive factor to the success of my work. Furthermore, enjoying the competition is always what I value most. I loved the approach of this project and I’ll definitely support the use of it on the next competitions organized in my community area.
The kind of simple Tool that can improve conflicting feedback and avoid unecessary backtracking on status reports.
Hi PH! 👋 After participating in several hackathons, I am attending my first online and as part of the process I needed to put the project here, so I hope you enjoy it 😊 The challenge was to improve the experience of participants and mentors during the hackathon and having participated in so many, what hurt me the most was mentoring. Every hour a group of mentors with great knowledge came to my team and I had told them how things are going and get great feedback, then another group of mentors came again to my team and I had to say everything again, creating a cycle of precarious mentoring 😰 That's why we created hackatrack, a platform that connects everyone in the hackathon. Each team can update their status sharing good or bad news with the mentors, with that, every group can receive precise feedback based on their status. The mentors can also update team status, giving even more information so others mentorships take less time and are more assertive 🤩 Hackatrack app is ready for launch! We are waiting for store review and as soon as we are on we will share the link with you guys. In the meantime, you can download the project on github 🤓 We are happy to receive feedback and answer any Qs about the project and its future! :)
It seems that this would really reduce stress and anxiety in hackathons
@maria_eduarda_leao We are looking forward to test the product in real hackathons and see how it goes :)
Really good idea, I hope to use this tool in next Hackathon!!
