Capgemini India launches Tech Challenge 2020

Capgemini in India has announced the launch of Tech Challenge 2020, the seventh season of its unique hackathon designed to identify the best programmers from across India. This hackathon invites passionate developers and tech enthusiasts to leverage their coding skills to design innovative solutions for a sustainable future.

The theme of Tech Challenge this year is based on social innovation where the focus will be to develop inclusive and sustainable solutions. For the finale this year, Capgemini technology experts will be mentoring each team and guiding them to design robust solutions. The goal is to design and build solutions that can further be implemented by organizations, authorities and society at large.

This year contestants will participate in intense coding challenges across 5 areas: Security (SOAR & Threat Hunting and Penetration Testing), Cloud (Azure and AWS), Digital Technologies (Adobe AEM, Salesforce Lightning, and Pega), Insights & Data (Google Cloud Platform with Data Analytics, and Pyspark), and Java Fullstack. Apart from these niche skills challenges, there are dedicated Campus tracks for students and fresher’s community as well. In a first for Tech Challenge, this year’s Grand Finale will be conducted virtually.

Tech Challenge has seen tremendous increase in participation of tech coders year-on-year. Since its inception, Tech Challenge has received over 5 Lakh registrations including almost 30% of women participation each year. Last year, finalists competed to develop solutions on water conservation, which was aligned to Capgemini’s focus on sustainability and its ambition to be ‘Architects of Positive Futures’.

The contest is open to all tech enthusiasts across India who possess a knack for innovation and disruptive technology. Interested candidates can participate by registering online on the Capgemini Tech Challenge website.
