Can you code – or know someone who can?
Enter the Amp George! hackathon on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 November.
The challenge for the hackathon is a kiosk or mobile application to enter job seekers into a draw for the Extended Public Works Programme. This municipal initiative provides hundreds of jobs per year in George – but they need ideas on how to get off the paper system! For a more comprehensive brief, please download this PDF: Amp George! Hackathon 2013 – Brief
There will be 3 rounds to compete in… and you can win them all!
Bright Idea: Show wireframes or screen mock-ups of your proposed app. Winner takes R3000
Feature shoot-out: Demonstrate an idea or unique working feature that makes the crowd go wow! First prize: R1000, Second prize: R500, Third prize: Extra slice of pizza.
Functional Prototype: Demonstrate an actual working app with the core elements of registration, the random draw and mobile communication with participants: R10,000 cash.
Pizza and coffee will be on tap while you hack.
