Right now the "time budget", or countdown clock, is only visible on the homepage while the hackathon is running. The amount of time that was available to the teams should also be visible on their project page.

Additionally, if there are "blips" (status updates, pull requests, chat comments, etc.), these could be reflected in the detailed timeline that shows actual contributions over the course of the time budget. Any blips that are before (i.e. challenge postings) and after (i.e. post-event continuation) of the project should be clearly readable as such.

A basic summary of the project timeline was already added in a recent release at the bottom of the project page (click on the last timestamp). The more complete visualization could be a simple list or a timeline. It really is the essence and lifecycle of the project at a hackathon, and should figure as prominently as the documentation - as long as it is reasonably nice to look at, and tells a story.

Through this feature it should be possible to derive how much actual time and effort went into the project.

Additional thoughts on hackathon budgets here.
