Coding To Complete The Blockchain
The 2019 Deep Dive Code-A-Thon is a Blockchain inspired event for developers to collaborate with other computer programmers and mentors to develop their ideas. It is a weekend hackathon where coders will come together, form teams, and build cool DApps (Decentralized Applications) or software applications. The opening night will coincide with the conclusion of the BlockFiesta conference, a day-long conference focused on the uses of Blockchain technology.
Code-A-Thon Participants that attend will be able to pitch ideas. Then app ideas will be narrowed and participants will form teams to work together on a prototype. Everyone will have the weekend to build and develop a prototype to be presented on Sunday to the public.
Finally, the weekend will culminate with demonstrations in front of an audience of judges and senior programmers, with prizes awarded to the winning teams. The grand prize team can take home up to $2000!
The Second Annual Deep Dive Code-A-Thon will begin October 4th 2019. If you’re a developer and would like to participate, buy your ticket via Eventbrite.
Deep Dive Code-A-Thon is a hackathon style competition. Competitors will form teams and build an app in 40 hours. The winning teams will walk away with prizes, including a first place prize $500 per person, a second place prize of $250 per person, and a third place prize of $125 sponsored by Deep Dive Coding.
