What should you build?

We have two innovation challenges and we require you to choose one.

  1. Product Challenge - How can we create a platform or product that could redefine media consumption?
  2. Creative Challenge - User generated experience using Astro's assets

It can be app based or web based, but we would let you define the platform.

Once you have registered to participate, we will provide you with a general brief of the challenges, one week prior to the event.

A detailed brief will be shared at the event’s commencement. So what are you waiting for?

Who should participate?

If you are a Malaysian age 18 and above and do not mind cranking up your brain juice over the weekend, this hackathon is for you. From junior developer to start-up teams, you are all welcome. This would be a great place to pit your skills and share experience with like-minded talents.

How is it judged?

This is a presentation without any slide/deck. Teams will need to impress our panel of judges and mentors with their demo. You are given 5 minutes to showcase your work. Do allow for some time for Q&A at the end of your pitch.
