+ Assign roles in the team: project manager(s), designer(s), programmer(s)
+ Be people centric: talk to the people you’re trying to help. Write down who they are: users, partners etc
+ Build a prototype. You can draw, do arts and crafts (askarrella for us Finns!), anything that people can look at and perhaps play with. Also, hot tip: Pop Appis great for prototyping mobile apps rrrreeeally quickly!
+ Pitch: its really important that other people can understand what your project is about, so practice on how to present your work!
+ Lastly the coding bit!
Yes, it is awesome if you manage to code your solution, or parts of it, IF it requires coding or software that is!
You can do really well over the weekend with zero coding, if you concentrate on prototyping and other areas.
Do not obsess about coding (it is only a small part of one scoring segment!)
Always design, prototype and test your prototype first!
