…and it’s a wrap. What a journey we had with almost 12,000!!! registrants joining us in the UiPath CodeGladiator Hackathon!
The competition started in March, and this weekend (9-10th Aug) we had our last challenge for the finalists! After 3 phases & 2 challenging briefs, the most skilled and engaged of them all completed the CodeGladiator – automation competition powered by UiPath.
So … what did the entire experience mean for UiPath and for the participants? Here’s a brief overview:
- 4 engaging webinars, where 8,000+ of the developers interacted with UiPath Product Managers - Vikas Jain (@Vikas.Jain), Dean Mauro (@DeanMauro), Wiliam Bognar (@iamwiliamb), Andrei Vasilescu and Mircea Grigore (@MirceaGrigore) - they enabled the participants to dive into the latest features: workflow analyzer, activity creator, workflow chaining and UiPath Forms.
- Out of all the submissions from the selected participants, we published 26 reusable components and custom activities on the Marketplace.
- We invited 22 teams to join the final challenge which they had to solve in 24h and present it live to the jury members. They put a lot of work and effort into executing custom activities for integrating with specific technology service providers such as Concur, GitHub, MongoDB, Trello, etc.
- At the end of the pitching sessions, the jury members represented by our very own @Pablito, together with our awesome UiPath devs - Remus (@q-z) and Anjan (@Anjan_Gogoi) decided that the winners are:
Winner - Team Hijackers - Members - Satyam Bhalla, Sarthak Gulati
1st Runner-up - Team RPA Progressor, Member Dimpi Rathi, Nithin
2nd Runner-up - Team Vajrang, Members - Vajrang Billlakurthi, Parth Doshi
