Spiralogics is hosting Spirathon – #CodeForSociety on the 18th and 19th of November, 2017. Out of the 122 who registered, 10 teams have been selected to compete in the main event. The teams were selected by the Team Leads of Spiralogics. The team was selected based on their idea and submission video.
Spirathon will take place over two days where the 10 teams will be building a prototype application based on a social cause theme – a technology that aims to better the lives of the community around us. The team includes members from different IT colleges as well as freelancers. Each team will be given a mentor to guide them during the two days. They will not be teaching them how to code but will advise on any issues they may have. Mentors include programmers and software engineers from well-known IT companies such as Yomari and SPI.

The online registration was opened in September where we first announced the event of this kind on our website and social media accounts. To recognise the efforts each team has put in making their submission video, the company plans to give a ‘Viewer’s Choice Award’ to the team whose video gets the most number of likes and shares on Facebook. The videos have been uploaded to SIT’s official Facebook page. We will be counting the votes on November 17.
We would like to wish all the participants best of luck for the main event.
