WINNER: Grand Prize
- * Mobile reporting for Salesforce is an unsolved problem.
- * Currently, sales reps and managers can only find *pre-defined* reports when they're on-the-go.
- * If they need a new report, they have to email their admin or a Salesforce consultant.
- * UPSHOT is the only tool that lets you easily *create* and *edit* reports on a mobile device.
- (1) Plain English queries. Simply enter "top 5 opportunities by amount" and that's what you get. Speech or text.
- (2) Suggestions. Related graphs help you understand your data. Suggested queries help you build on what you've entered.
- (3) Visual editing, using touch. Build your report gradually by clicking on graphs. Swipe to find more graphs.
- * Our mobile web app is built using HTML5. Add it to your home screen on iOS, Android, and Windows 8.
- * Installation is as simple as a single-click oauth login. Done.
- * We use the Partner API to extract Salesforce metadata and generate the vocabulary for our parser.
- * A semantic parser translates your English query into SOQL and runs the SOQL query. (The parser is still pretty rough, but people still love the tool!)
- * Deployed on Heroku. We <3 continuous integration.

Formerly an engineer at Salesforce for 9 years. Lead engineer on Salesforce Analytics. Tech lead for Custom Report Types and many other reporting features. Currently CTO of UPSHOT. We are using NLP and Machine Learning to create a radically simplified way to query and explore your data.
Creating even simple reports in Salesforce is a complex task. Even experienced users have difficulty creating reports with outer joins, exception reports, etc. Our product UPSHOT lets you query Salesforce data in a simpler and more accessible interface...

So pretty much what they did was put their business that they already had, onto the salesforce and they won the hackathon? Salesforce needs to look at their own rulebook.

A link to the October 8, 2013 meetup is here:
Is that a rules violation to have begun working on a project prior to October 25, 2013 ?

This definitely looks like a YEARS-athon and not a Hackathon. It beats the spirit of Hackathons altogether!
