Codeathon
Are you up for the challenge?

Select one of the Codeathon programing challenges listed below, and REGISTER now to submit your solution overview. Entries will be judged on the overall technical approach, reusability, security and performance.

Codeathon Programming Challenges

Build a tool/ framework that provides the ability to design and create reports/ dashboards in a mobile application. The input data source needs to be SQLite/other database and the output needs to be in a format that can be easily integrated with the application (ideally without rebuilding).

Example 1: For a mobile application with a SQLite data source, one should be quickly able to choose required fields, design a layout and run the report/ dashboard. The tool should then produce an output which can be easily integrated within the mobile application.

Example 2: For a van sales application, the order data for the past seven days is available on the local SQLite database. Using the tool the developer should be able to quickly create a summary dashboard that displays the top 5 SKUs in terms of the value. This dashboard should then be integrated into the mobile application to show the 5 top selling SKUs for each outlet.

Preferred technology: Android or React Native

Design and build a state-of-the-art mobile sync framework to facilitate two-way synchronization between a cloud data source and an offline mobile application. The application can run offline and when sync is triggered, it should be able to perform the update while taking data conflict into account.

  • Get data from different sources like email, images, unstructured data, Chatbots
  • Convert data into a structured form
  • Enter data in any backend enterprise system (Salesforce, SAP, etc.)
  • Example: Automation in IT Support/Helpdesk

Develop friendly interfaces to match labor skill sets with farmers’ requirement on any given day. The farmer should be able to locate available laborers on-time at various growth stages of the crops:

  • Labor search and matching
  • Browse the farming skills
  • Labor wages, demands and availability
  • Simple and intuitive screen flow optimized for native mobile and/or web

Blockchain Solution across Industries: Industry 4.0, HealthTech and FinTech

The component should be reusable and presented in the form of an app for demo purposes

  • Android: Develop a reusable calendar week view and month view using recycler views
  • React Native: Develop expanded list view
