[CLOSED] EskomSePush Build Challenge
If you’re interested in building solutions to real South African problems, are keen to explore a new API or have been waiting for a cool project to collaborate on with friends, you’re in the right place.
🗓 Important Dates:
Let’s face it, loadshedding sucks.
To make something good of a bad situation and have some fun in the process, we have teamed up with EskomSePush and we challenge you to build something with their API that knocks our socks off!
EskomSePush will be giving those that participate exclusive access to their API for the duration of the challenge, and there will be some awesome EskomSePush and OfferZen socks up for grabs for those that submit a build.
You and your team are the credited ‘owners’ of your ideas, code and content. However, in the spirit of the community, you are required to open-source your code under the MIT License; see below for more info.
You can participate alone or as part of a team. You can be part of multiple teams if you want to.
We have opened this to members of the OfferZen Programmable Banking community and those in the ZATech Slack community that are already interested in building with the EskomSePush API.
- Once you register for the build challenge, you will receive an email with a token for the EskomSePush API.
If you don’t have any idea’s about what to build, we’ve got you covered. You can use these ideas or bring your own.
Each submission must include:
- Clear documentation for setting up your solution.
- Two-minute video/ live demo of your solution showing how to use it and how it solves a problem.
- A team photo 💜
Your solution can use any language or framewor
- Keep it simple. If your solution saves someone 5 minutes a week - that's a meaningful impact on a real person's life!
- Try to find smart workarounds if a platform limits you. Your solution doesn't need to be rolled out at scale right now.
- Ensure it works in production.
Join us even if you just want to chill and watch other people build!
We will be hosting two open sessions, which you are welcome to attend if you want help getting started with the EskomSePush API or if you have any questions you would like to ask.
Everyone that submits a build will receive a pair of EskomSePush or OfferZen socks!
We will host an online event where teams will be asked to demo their solutions to the audience. We will reach out to you when you have submitted your build with the details.
