Eligibility

Open only to interns of Esri’s summer 2019 program.

Must fill out questionaire provided by the Intern management and have been assigned to a team.

Must create a project submission with the approved project in DevPost before the submission deadline.

Submission Requirements

Submissions will be judged on content developed during the hackathon submission period only. Any component developed before the hackathon submission period is not eligible for judging. 

All teams must declare their participation by the team entry deadline by completing a project submission. All project submissions must be approved by the Intern Hackathon management before the deadline of July 25.

All code must be submitted to a public Github repository and available for the judges and event organizers to access.

The submitted solution must build and run in a standalone app on a PC or Mac computer or in a mobile device simulator running on a PC or Mac computer.

All projects submitted must use the ArcGIS platform APIs in some way. Projects submitted that do not use ArcGIS developer technology are not eligible for judging and prizes.

All submissions must use only publicly released APIs, SDKs, software and services. Since the submissions are made to public github repositories, and our ultimate goal is to show your project off on a public facing website, we cannot accept submissions that use internally available non-public components.

All submissions must be completed on Devpost with all required attributes.

If additional hardware is required it is the team's responsibility to make it available to the judges during the judging period.

Submission Rights & Display

Esri maintains full rights to the resulting project and maintains the right to continue further development of the idea. 

Esri will have the right to include the project on its website or promotional materials.

Code of conduct

All participants are required to abide by Esri's code of conduct.
