Hi,

Lisa would know better than I, but I don't think our task force is ready to produce guidelines for developers. I suggest you refer them to WebAIM's Cognitive Accessibility Checklist at http://wave.webaim.org/cognitive, or create for them a less-overwhelming subset of its recommendations.

Congrats.

As Hackathons are largely practical it might be good to focus on those
areas with better developed techniques. However that doesn't leave a
lot of scope so you could back up with other areas that need work.
Perhaps people there know something useful?
