May 26, 2016
Orient Software has signed up as a golden sponsor and co-organizer of Game UIT Hackathon 2016 that will be held on May 28-29. After the first sponsorship in last year, we expect to support students in one of the important university activities, and bring our corporate image closer to them.
Organized by University of Information Technology Hochiminh City and Faculty Software Engineering for 3 years, Hackathon is a game programming contest for students joining as a group from 3 – 5 members. The highlight of the event is participants spending 24 hours to create, code, and build games following the defined theme. Only the teams that manage to complete their games are selected to present their achievements to the judges.
Besides Orient Software, the event engages 10 enterprise partners. With the strong sponsorship, the contest demonstrates interesting awards to participants with cash, scholarships, and start-up packages. As the result, we encourage student’s team work spirit, creativities, and problem solving skills.
Last year’s theme was “Game for Green Earth” attract about 300 students, in 30 teams, mainly from IT faculties. Games were designed for many platforms, such as iOS, Windows Phone, Android, etc.
IT industry is all about human capability. We try our best to contribute to the Vietnam IT community, and together we grow.
