The TripAdvisor Intern Hackathon is a programming competition that is held annually for engineering and product interns in all TripAdvisor offices across North America.
Interns were split into teams of four and tasked with creating an innovation to implement at TripAdvisor. Teams were composed of a engineers and product management interns, many of which were flown to our Needham HQ for the week from other offices.
Projects were judged on five criteria: How well it applied to TripAdvisor, How creative the idea was, how well the solution was designed and executed, how likely it was that it will become a real project in the future, and how well the team presented the project.
Interns competed for bragging rights as well as some awesome prizes!
