Hawaii Annual Code Challenge returns this October

THG is proud to return as a sponsor of the Hawaii Annual Code Challenge (HACC), the state hackathon, which links up coders in the community with participating state departments to collaborate on solutions to challenges currently plaguing agencies.

Now in its third year, the theme of the 2018 HACC will be sustainability, and the event is being combined with the state’s AGathon. Register today!

Coders of all ages and backgrounds are invited to the highly anticipated civic coding competition, which the state will kickoff on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the East-West Center’s Hawaii Imin International Conference Center.

The HACC breaks away from the typical time-crunched hackathon format spanning a mere day or a single weekend. This year’s HACC will allocate three weeks for solution development and supplies interim workshops to assist teams with their presentations and programs.

At the kickoff, participants will form teams and accept their challenges based on pitches from several the state departments, then proceed to develop their concepts and prototypes throughout the duration of the competition. The challenge culminates with a Judging and Awards event on Saturday, Nov. 10.

Previous years resulted in a wayfinding mobile app for the University of Hawaii Manoa campus; a mobile-friendly, searchable Hawaii Revised Statutes app; and more.

The HACC is an annual event conceived by Gov. David Y. Ige and coordinated by theOffice of Enterprise Technology Services in partnership with the High Technology Development Corporation, DevLeague, and others. For more details or to register, visit hacc.hawaii.gov.
