Sun Hacks is a student-run hackathon at Arizona State University

Last year, we were able to bring this culture to Phoenix, Arizona embodied in Desert Hacks and SWHacks and we want to continue expanding this innovative community. Our vision this year is to bring hackers of all backgrounds together for a 36-hour session of bringing their ideas to life. By attracting students from around the country to our annual hackathon, we will cultivate the local tech community and provide students brand new opportunities and connections.

Amazon - Best Alexa Skill

Best Alexa Skill! Your skill:
· functions correctly (for the intents that are implemented),
· solves a real-world problem,
· has the potential to provide a complete suite of functionality (even if not implemented fully during the hackathon),
· and is a good use case for voice-enablement (it should not be easier to use a website/app than to use your Alexa Skill).

Prize - 4 Amazon echoes

State Farm - VR for Good

VR for Good is about how we can use this technology for the good of humankind. The prize will be Leap Motions and we plan to ship them to the winning team after Sun Hacks ends.
