Saucecode hackathon is a sub-brand of Saucecode, an open community of African software developers. The Saucecode hackathon is a project aimed at discovering and celebrating the finest tech talents in Africa. It was conceived to challenge the talents in our ecosystem, encourage programming best practices, promote collaboration, make new role models out of the very best and put Africa on the global IT map.
The format is simple - We announce the problem statements on the competition's website, participants would then form teams to solve one of the listed problems and build their prototype in 3 weeks. The first 20 to submit their prototypes move to the next round, where users can start voting to pick the final 10. The top teams with the highest votes make it to the final round. These 100 teams will then compete against each other by pitching to the judges to be the best tech team in Nigeria.
For transparency and better engagement, the leaderboard will be visible to members of the public during the voting stage and will automatically update with every vote. The winning team will be the Saucecode champion for the year and will win a macbook pro. We invite you to join the movement as we celebrate some of our continent's next generation of engineering talents. Kindly follow our twitter accounts for updates.
Each team participating in the hackathon will be required to build their application to solve a business problem in one of the following categories:
Maya Horgan Famodu
Founder & Partner, Ingressive
Product Mentor, Google
Adesegun Alex Adeyemo
Engineering Manage, Interswitch Group
