The Hack-a-Thon

The Contestants

The Hack-a-Thon requires a bit more skill and expertise. Contestants should be familiar with the ConnectWise Automate SDK, VB.NET or C# and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

So, what you are solving for?

Each contestant will be given a few different scenarios to solve and then leverage their ConnectWise Automate skills to create an integration that interacts with the Ignite Manager and/or the Computer Management screen. Participants are encouraged to attend a pre-day session to learn more about the Ignite Manager and the Computer screen from an ConnectWise Automate Developer to really sharpen their completive edge. Competition will begin immediately following the pre-day session and contestants will have until the final day of AN17 to work on their solution. Judging will take place during lunch on the last day of Automation Nation.

Judging the Integration

All integrations will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Technical Difficulty
  • UI
  • Usefulness
  • Business Potential
  • Overall Quality
The Winner

The Hack-a-Thon Champion will take home one free AN18 registration and some killer prizes from our Invent vendors. And of course bragging rights for life as the FIRST-EVER Automate Hack-a-Thon Champion.
