The SkyCiv 2021 Hackathon is here!
The event is a free online event where structural engineers can connect as a community, learn new skills, and challenge themselves to develop smart industry solutions. It’s an opportunity for those passionate about programming and structural engineering, to harness and showcase their skills!
Build your very own Engineering solution on SkyCiv tech across 4 days with the help of the SkyCiv Engineers to build your prototype in a fraction of the time. Your solution will be showcased to over 80,000 SkyCiv users and to SkyCiv’s extensive social network.
Whether your company is looking to keep up with their competitors or you just have an interest in automating digital solutions, this is a perfect opportunity to kick-start that initiative and up-skill your employees in the process.
Solutions will be judged and showcased by the SkyCiv team based on the following criteria:
- How innovative the solution is.
- How strong the problem/solution fit is.
- How well the prototype functioned on the demo day.
The event will be virtually hosted and all tutorial sessions will be available to view via YouTube.
If your solution is considered intellectual property, you can still join in and, receive professional support from the team without having your solution showcased. Teams can be individual or teams (no more than 4).
There are two demo days (depending on your stream/timezone), 4pm Friday the 8th of October Sydney and 4pm Friday the 8th of October London Time. At this time, each team will have 2 mins to present, 2 mins for questions and 1 minute for grading. The solutions are peer-graded, so you will receive feedback and suggestions from other participants in the Hackathon.
There is also an opportunity to submit your solutions over the weekend via video. This will allow teams who can’t attend during work hours to participate. The winner will be announced Monday 11th October.
