Mitra Innovation, based in Sri Lanka and the UK, will be hosting its first ever hackathon event, which will take place this weekend (7th) in Moratuwa. 


The 10-hour hackathon event titled ‘Hack’ed’, will bring eight teams of Mitra Innovation’s expert software engineers together to compete against time and each other to deliver the best and most relevant office productivity application. 


Software engineers from the company have previously taken part in many externally-run hackathons, but as a company that thrives on innovation and using technologies such as WSO2 and Amazon Web Service (AWS)s to bring new products and platforms to market, Mitra felt it was time to run their own hackathon.


As an internal hackathon, Hack’ed 2017 focuses on the theme of using new apps to improve the office environment.  Mitra Innovation’s CTO and Chief Architect, Sudaraka Jayashanka invited the teams participating in the Hackathon in order to brief them. 


“‘In our office environment, while carrying out day-to-day work, you must have felt If I had an app to do this, it would be more productive. Competing teams are expected to identify a scenario within Mitra Innovation’s office environment that is problematic and provide a brilliant solution in the form of an app.”


Solutions must be built entirely from scratch and within a time frame of no more than 10 hours, after which competing teams will present their solution to the judges’ panel and the winning teams will be awarded exciting prizes. All participating teams will be provided with an AWS account to provision the services needed to run and deploy their 
app solution.”
