Welcome to Kinetic Data's virtual hackathon with $6,000 in prizes.
Pre-registrants will be emailed the contest topic four hours before the topic is posted online.
Once you are done building, you need to get it to us to judge. Here's how.
All submissions will be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the submission deadline. Include in the email:
How to attach your submission:
Easiest: Export your Kapp and attach to the email (see FAQ for how to export Kapp) If you have multiple Kapps … attach all of them to the one email
Medium: Export your Kapp and attach to an email also include your bundles directory as a .zip file
Hardest: Export your Kapp and attach to an email also include your bundles directory as a .zip file also include your Kinetic Task Trees and Routines that are relevant. If you have any custom Handlers, include them too. All Task supporting files should be zipped into one Task.zip file
Which should I use?
Easiest if you are using the hosted space
Medium if you are looking to win “best looking” and you customized your bundle
Hardest if you are looking to include “everything”. You would most likely go this route if you are trying to win “most complete” or “best looking”.
To ask additional questions please email email@example.com
How do I get an environment to build in?
Either use our cloud hosted space or a VM. Setup instructions are here.
This all seems a bit overwhelming. Where can I learn about how to get started?
Glad you asked. Our training page has videos and other resources to get you started. We may be sending out some tips if you registered early (hint for future hackathons). You can do all kinds of complex stuff with Kinetic Request, but you don’t have to. Keep it simple if you’d like and you still have an opportunity to win big prizes.
Do I have to register?
How do I export my Kapp?
Do I have to screw around with a bundle to submit an entry?
No, you can use our cloud space and just use the base bundle or other installed bundles. If you don’t know what bundles are, take a look at this article on Kinetic Community
Do I have to be a US citizen?
Yes, at least for now. See Rules here.
Only one entry per contestant?
Yes, sort of. You can submit more than once, your first entry will be judged for "fastest" any other entry is judged for one of the other three. Feel free to add notes when you submit your build.
We want to continue to get developers from all levels and backgrounds involved in creating great solutions with Kinetic Request.
To help in this endeavor, we'll be continuing this series of hackathons each quarter. Each will involve a different challenge with varying prizes. Future contest may include:
