Announcing the Winners of the "Power-Up Automation" Global Virtual Hackathon

In June this year we launched the Power Up Automation - Global Virtual Hackathon. It was a virtual hackathon, designed to encourage anyone across the globe to participate, and it lasted ten weeks. During that time, we had over 1,000 participants and 150 ideas submitted. Of those ideas approximately 40 had created components with a business impact broad enough that we’ve included them in our recently launched UiPath Go! online marketplace.

 

At UiPath, we have a few different objectives we want to achieve when holding a hackathon. For the global hackathon in particular the goal was to create reusable components with large business impact on one hand, and on the other hand, to crowd-source innovation from developers across the world.

 

Through hackathons we also develop our community, a goal that rests at the core of the hackathon experience. At UiPath we have a vision of nurturing a community of curious minds. We want to connect them, build them up locally, and provide a virtual and physical space for community members to nourish each other’s ideas.

 

Further, we strive to familiarize smart and curious individuals with UiPath, because there are programmers and business managers who know there are better solutions out there for what they want to achieve. We want to help them discover our product as a solution.

 

To that end, it’s our pleasure to announce the results of the 2018 global hackathon.

 

On to the winners

 

After seven weeks of judging all of the submissions we are happy to announce the five grand prize winners, 10 category prize winners, three special prize winners, and one popular prize.
