Mosque Tech Challenge 2017

[Event has ended]
Sat, 10 June 2017, to 11 June | Registration at 1.30pm | English


Fees: Free (Sign up in teams of max 3)

Innamal a'malu binniyat - “Actions are dependent upon their Intentions”

Ideas form from all places, why not we nurture ideas from the the most pure and sacred place of our community, that is the Mosque.

Mosque Tech Challenge is a 24hr+ Hackathon Competition that aims to give youths a platform to seek, implement and share the best and coolest ideas with technology towards the benefit of the community.

This year we will be aligning ourselves with the Ramadhan theme - "Rahmah" and explore how technology can build communities and bring people closer. Whether it's in the format of a Mobile App, a Web App or a Hardware implementation - or a combination - we want to see how you innovate. It could be a game, a matchmaking service or even just an info website, but we want it to be cool :)

We will be planning workshops leading up to the hackathon to introduce participants to some tools, and hence in the process of thinking about ideas, build our capacity for the skills and knowledge required - for the future. These workshops will be open to those who are not taking part too and will be free.

More information and registration >

This hackathon will be special as it will be held during Ramadhan in a Mosque and participants will be able to take part in the mass iftar and special night prayers for the muslims. Experience how it is like to spend the night at a Mosque during this blessed month.

We are looking for participants 16 years old and above in groups of maximum 3.
Non-Muslims are welcome to take part.

Do register early as spaces are limited (We're limiting to maximum 10 teams due to space constraints).

Over $1500 in Cash and Voucher Prizes to be won for the top 3 teams and door gifts for each team.
Generously sponsored by Mendaki Club, General Assembly and 12Geeks - and also an anonymous sponsor.

Judging will be done by our panel of judges from the industry and the Mosque committee. You'll be given a couple of minutes to present what you build at the end of the 24hr+. The presentation should be straight to the point. Problem, Solution, Implementation. - no need for fancy powerpoints. Try your best to have a workable solution :)

You will be assessed on 3 Criteria:

Impactful/Relevance (50%)
- Addresses the challenge
- Feasibility

Technical (30%)
- Complexity
- Completeness
- How much of the solution has been built in the 24 Hours.
- Design and User Experience

Innovation (20%)
- Is it interesting
- Has the idea been implemented before?
- Is it solving the problem in a different way?
