We are after the 4th edition of the Let’s Code night hackathon which brought record results. 107 registered teams, nearly 350 registered people, 68 groups that took part in the competition in 8 cities in Poland, 60 applications and 49 media patrons!
Let’s Code is organized every year by the Sii company and with every edition attracts a larger number of participants. This year, 107 teams registered to the contest! The increase in popularity is connected with the quality of applications. This is a challenge because the participants have only 20 hours to prepare an app. The hackathon consists of two stages – the local and global one.
On the 18th and 19th of November in Gdańsk, Warsaw, Łódź, Poznań, Lublin, Wrocław, Cracow and Katowice the contestants took part in the local stage of the competition and fought for a place in the global stage and awards – smartwatches Samsung Galaxy S2 Classic. In total 60 applications in three competition categories were created: business, social and passion & lifestyle.
In the global stage, everything depended on the votes of Internet users. The top 27 applications have been published on the website www.letscode.pl.sii.eu. Over 5,000 votes were cast in 5 days! Everyone could vote only once. The winning team received over 1500 votes and won the main prize – 10 000 PLN. The winning application was Petalert – by the Gloo team from Lublin. Thanks to this app you will be able to find your lost pet or help homeless animals find a new home.
