Calling All Coders
IT’S HAPPENING RIGHT HERE AT THE JAPAN PACIFIC ICT CENTRE!
Teams will develop code that is a SOLUTION to a PROBLEM STATEMENT that will be issued between the 22nd-24th April, 2016.
SPACE is LIMITED so you are invited to PRE-REGISTER here: https://goo.gl/lSjFcY
Global Prize Money is $10,000 USD kindly sponsored by VIRGIN GROUP.
This is a global competition where after being presented with a Problem Statement from Washington D.C will commence work on developing code that will solve the problem.
The Japan Pacific ICT Centre in collaboration with the US Embassy (Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga and Tuvalu) will host the Pacific #Fishackathon and would like to invite coders from around the Pacific to Suva, Fiji to participate in this exciting event. Coders will gather at the Japan Pacific ICT Centre to develop sustainable code for Fishing.
The Fishackathon is an initiative of the US State Department.
Fishackathon is a public-private partnership that aims to capitalize on the expansion of mobile phone and internet use across the developing world to address sustainable fishery challenges.
The annual Fishackathon event calls on coders and science enthusiasts from all around the world to come together to create new applications and tools for use on mobile phones and other devices, which can help fishers work smarter and more safely in sustainable fishing.
