All ye coders of the world, it’s time to fill your goody bags again! The Jigsaw hack is chugging into town this weekend and has a fun challenge planned for you. Slotted for 12 hours, the hack aims to celebrate, sharpen, and encourage your coding skills while having a whole lot of fun!
Jigsaw Academy is a kickass online school for analytics. The platform offers courses in big data and business data analytics to over 10,000 students in over 20 countries. Students can go through intermediate and advanced levels, and also pick up skills in specific sectors. A cloud-based platform, Jigsaw has tied up with elite institutions like IIM Bangalore and SDA Bocconi in Milan to train students in critical skills that are in-demand at workplaces around the world.
Now, let’s get back to the details of the hackathon, shall we? First, let’s take a look at the skill set you require to go along for the ride. For the hack on the 19th of March, Jigsaw is looking for Java and Frontend Developers. If you are a Java developer, it would be great if your portfolio includes experience in Object Oriented Programming, Core Java, Architectural Patterns, MVC Frameworks, RESTful, Web Application Frameworks and the likes. On the frontend frontier, we’d love for you to join us if you have built formidable skills in HTML, CSS, PHP, AngularJS and JQuery.
Sounds interesting? Great! Then, apply here. Once we receive your application, we’ll shortlist a bunch of candidates. If you’ve made the cut, we’ll call you in for the final hackathon. On the day of the hackathon, we’d like for you to come in all charged up and ready to code like the cool ninja you are and blow our minds with your products. You won’t need much. Just come along with your laptop and charger and settle down for an individual challenge.
Now for the fun bit. The hackathon is the place to meet and greet fellow coders and awesome talent. You get to bounce ideas around, learn from other developers and, most importantly, develop your already awesomesauce skills. Plus, you get a crack at the grand prize. Jigsaw is giving out some cool vouchers for the winners to take home. And we’ll keep you fuelled up with yummy food and snacks through the day.
