With JiveWorld16 officially announced and the call for speakers in full swing, I wanted to take a moment to share with my fellow Jive developers some of the new ideas we are implementing at the JiveWorld16 Developer Conference.  Rest assured the staples of the developer conference intact, such as the open hackathon, Midnight Hack:30, our Hacker Lounge staffed with Jive experts and amazing deep-dive developer sessions.   But we wanted to change things up a bit to make things more fun and engaging, so we decided to change the format of the hackathon.

 

We call it a Tri-Hackathon (*pause for effect)

 

This hackathon format is designed to expand developer skills, knowledge and creativity across multiple critical hacker disciplines, including: Technology Trivia, Coding Skills and Video Games!

 

 

Technology Trivia

Our team is putting together an online quiz that will test various aspects of developer and hacker trivia.   How well versed are you on technology?  Now is the chance to find out!  Topics for the quiz will include: programming logic, terminology, technology history, puzzles and much more!  The developer(s) with the highest score(s) will win this leg of the hackathon.

 

Winners will receive bragging rights in the Developer Community and additional awards yet to be determined.  Stay tuned for updates!

 

Coding Skills

Building on last year's success, we will revamp our list of Challenges from JiveWold14 to align with the direction and new features in the Jive platform. Developers will be enabled to complete relatively quick challenges throughout the course of the conference.  Each completed challenge will earn points, and the developer(s) with the most points will win this leg of the hackathon.

 

Winners will receive bragging rights in the Developer Community and additional awards yet to be determined.  Stay tuned for updates!

 

Video Games

Need time to decompress?  How about taking a break to get the creative juices flowing?  This year in the JiveWorld Hacker Lounger, we will have an arcade cabinet loaded with a large assortment of FREE play vintage arcade games.  Just before the conference, we will announce an official JiveWorld16 Tri-Hackathon video game.  The leaderboard will be wiped, and from there it's arcade rulez ... the highest score(s) win this leg of the hackathon.

 

Winners will receive bragging rights in the Developer Community and additional awards yet to be determined.  Stay tuned for updates!

 

... and dont forget about the JiveWorld16 Tri-Hackathon T-Shirt!
