Prizes worth 15K @ Pune Hack Day July 21, 2006

Posted by rajAT in betterlabs, hack day, pune, ruby on rails, sap.

SAP and BetterLabs along with PuneRuby are organizing Pune Rails Hackathon.

Pune Rails Hackathon is a no-frills geek meet where passionate Ruby/Rails programmers can get together and build some cool web services and applications on Ruby/Rails, creating the early prototypes. The idea is really to foster a gathering of like minded Ruby & Rails ethusiasts (whether you are an expert or just a starter, it should not matter) to come together and build something cool. Anyone from all India can participate.

Venue and Date

Better Labs
14 Trade Field,
Opposite Sony World Showroon
Sanghavi Nagar, Aundh
Pune 411007

July 29-30, 2006
All day and night
Presentations will start Sunday afternoon

There are 3 competitions where if you finish the respective tasks you can pocket 5K for each of them if you are judged as the best.

The tasks are –

1. An application that displays Login, does simple authentication and displays an authorisation based Menu. In addition to the menu, the application should display a data entry form that would allow one-many kind of invoice data entry and a report that would display and would allow editing and deletion of these entries. The application should allow people to register and also change their passwords.

2. A web service that would provide the following:
a. Currency Rates of at least 10 currencies (from a database table) compared to GBP
b. Currency Rate of a particular currency compared to GBP
c. Conversion amount between currency X and currency Y for a particular amount in currency X
For more details, visit http://www.xe.com and see how they do things. There should also be a backend allowing editing the currency rates and a front-end making use of the web-service to display currency rates.

The rule is that the entire development should be done using Ruby and Rails framework only and all the source code should be in working order. It will be displayed on the PuneRuby website.

PuneRuby and SFBL are also offering a prize of Rs.5000 to the best entry other than the two above. Again, the source code of that should be in working order and will be displayed on PuneRuby website.

Rules for the above competition are –

1. All entries should be created from scratch.
2. Members of SFBL, BetterLabs and the organisers do not qualify.
3. Entrants should be members of PuneRuby.
4. Judges’ decision will be final. If there is any fowl play, prize will go to the next contestant.

5. Prizes are for finished entries only.
6. Presentation and Coding standards are of utmost importance.
