Join our global MACHathon 2022, brought to you by the MACH Alliance! Let’s show the world what we can do with MACH technology!
You must register your team for the event Here by 15th May 2022, 11.59 pm BST. Teams not registered by the deadline will not be accepted.
Theme: Accelerate at MACH Speed
Just the spark of an idea can ignite a game changing improvement or innovation. The API-driven nature of MACH means as an industry, we can deliver critical business functions as fast as we can connect to an API. Companies not offering the best Developer Experience will fail to grow. Try to scale or grow your business and technology when you fail to attract the people to do it. The MACH stack creates the best Developer Experience plus the fastest time to market.
Focused on business acceleration, we’re looking for entries that highlight a real challenge and show how this technology is the solution for driving growth, accomplishing something better or quicker than before, or serving people in better ways. Teams should ideally bring 360° knowledge from business, design, architecture, and development.
If you know how it is done, show how it is done.
What to submit:
Demo Video - Your video should include a demo of your working application
Architecture diagrams of your solution - as well as a few slides or a document explaining why they chose the tech stack they used.
Live URL or any other way in which your project can be accessed.
MACHathon teams are required to submit a 3-min video of their solution by Wednesday, 1st June 2022, 11.59 pm BST. It is up to you to decide how simple or elaborate you want your video to be.
As the main cornerstone of the jury’s decision, however, the video should give all judges a good understanding of the team’s project, where they are coming from and why they chose this specific project, how they set up their project, which technologies they used, what their team results of the MACHathon are and if and how they expect to take their project forward after the MACHathon.
In addition to the video, teams should submit architecture diagrams of your solution as well as a few slides or a document explaining why they chose the tech stack they used.
Lastly, teams should submit a live URL or any other way in which their project can be accessed.
Teams can also decide to add more material, however, it’ll be up to the judges to decide if they want to take those additional materials into consideration or not.
