Ideally, the idea would be developed using one or combining some of the Technologies such as, and not limited to, Artificial Intelligence, Application Development, Web Development, Big Data, DevOps, Robotic Process Automation and IoT.
Sky is developers’ limit when it comes to the 010 Innovation Hackathon, as the final product can be a prototype, product concept, a software, a hardware, blueprints, or a working model.
Vodafone will select the final participants upon filtering their ideas on first-come, first-served basis. Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges based on set criteria. What is the criteria, you may ask? Well, Vodafone is keeping everyone on their toes, as it will be announced to accepted teams on the Hackathon’s first day.
