What is our hackathon?
The challenges

The final challenges and supporting information will be revealed in the information session. Note that not all our challenges will involve working with large datasets; some will be oriented towards programming user interface and developing framework supporting our applications.

Available support during the event
Challenges contributors will present the challenges at the information session and will be present to act as mentor intermittently during the event.

Judges and criteria
The judges will be DNV GL personnel having managerial, sales and technical expertise. The criteria will focus on how actionable the prototypes are and how much improvement can be derived from it, from efficiency and customer experience point of view. The sales pitch performance will also be used as a criteria.
