Second Annual 24-hour AbeBooks’ Hackathon
The second annual AbeBooks’ Hackathon kicks off January 31st at 4pm. Over a 24 hour period, students in the University of Victoria computer science and software engineering programs will be challenged to produce an innovative application using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud computing platform. At the conclusion, the students will demonstrate their work to a team of AbeBooks’ software engineers, who will award a series of prizes. Entries will be judged in a variety of categories: Best use of big data, Best mobile experience, Best use of AWS, Best use of social data, and more.
Students can compete individually or in groups of up to four. It’s free to participate and all entrants will receive a commemorative t-shirt and a valuable learning experience with AWS; access to which will be provided by AbeBooks for the coding competition.
