AUHack is Denmarks largest hackathon. From April 13th - 15th , we give you the opportunity to come create, innovate and hack on crazy ideas.

AUHack is Denmark's largest hackathon. Over a 36-hour period from April 13th - 15th, students interested in IT development and IT design will meet and collaborate intensively over a weekend to create prototypes and concepts. Your goal is not to create finished products, but to come up with ideas, play with new technology and make new hacks. It is an opportunity to share your ideas with different people, build cool stuff, learn from our mentors and just have fun. Our goal is to bring students from different fields of study and universities together and set a framework, where you can carry out your projects and ideas. Students for all study programs are welcome, and everybody is there to help each other and have fun!

Judging Criteria

  • Technology
    How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
  • Design
    Was thought put into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about HCI (is it easy to use or does it use a cool interface?).
  • Completion
    Does the hack work? Did the team achieve everything they wanted?
  • Learning
    Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before? If a team which always does virtual reality projects switch up and try doing a mobile app instead, that exploration should be rewarded.
