  1. Planning to sponsor 2 "senior developers" to attend the hack-a-thon and take the lead role on the development effort, they will be involved in the architecture aspect of the project and goal-building and attendees will be able to choose a component from the architecture to work on.
  2. We will purchase a prize for the developer/team that accomplishes the most quality work scored based on complexity of the component(s) they will be working on. The judges for the prizes will be Jeff Williams, Kevin Wall and Chris Schmidt.
  3. There will be a set of guidelines for entries – primarily, backwards compatibility and/or clear upgrade path from ESAPI 2.x, testability, and distribution model of the component.
