Steve L Hackathon Tips
 
  • Focus on developing the most important feature(s) first and work towards producing the simplest version of the app running with a minimal number of  features working. Don't get tied down with compiling a large and untested project at the end of the event. 
  • Divide and conquer: Choose a development approach which allows each team member a way to get engaged immediately. Use an app like Trello to track the features you are developing and the tasks that team members are pursuing.  
  • Create UI menu stubs and objects to show functionality but delay implementing them if they are not critical. For example, don't waste time implementing a user login system, this is not the novel aspect of your app.
  • Eat,  stay hydrated and, yes, SLEEP!
