The judges panel works to crown the projects of the future

On September 12, 2015 at 6:30 pm, Judges were hard at work to determine what teams had created and executed the best projects for wecancode.org WCC HACK Tijuana 2015.

WeCanCode Organizers gathered the best possible talent at this historic and first time event in Tijuana. The group included:
Chris Lopez, Director of Marketing and Creative Strategy at Advancio, Inc., Joshua Aranda, Community Manager of Google Developers Tijuana, Claudia Basurto of Tijuana Innovadora, Dr. Adan Hirales, Researcher at Cety’s University Tijuana, Guillermo Mejia, Managing Director at Mind Hub, and Ivan Lozano, CEO of Iron Drone.

The judges had one thing in mind, to select the best possible projects while including the social impact of the region: education, government, water conservation, and social good. These impacts needed to serve the basic criteria set forth by the challenges including: Quality and Innovation of the idea, Functional Implementation, Overall Visual Appeal, and Overall Impact.

Once demo presentations had concluded, judges had to take on the task of reviewing and discussing the projects. Judges went back and forth deciding what projects had executed all the elements and which ones went above and beyond their code in just under 8 hours!
