3rd annual event to bring together best coders and creative designers

Calling all coders! VIA Metropolitan Transit has extended the deadline to register for the VIA GoCodeSA Codeathon to Monday, Feb. 18, 2019.

The VIA GoCodeSA Codeathon is an event designed to bring together the best coders, designers, and tech experts in the area, and challenge them to turn bright transit ideas into potential transit innovation for our region. Teams compete for cash prizes.

The 3rd Annual GoCodeSA Codeathon is from Feb. 22-24, 2019, at Trinity University’s Center for the Sciences and Innovation (CSI), West Campus Lane, in San Antonio. The Codeathon registration deadline is now Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, and is limited to the first 175 registrants. Online registration is available at gocodesa.com.

Codeathon is free for participants, who will be eligible for cash prizes based on their work. Applicants must register as a group, each composed of at least two, and at most, five individuals, age 18 and older. The Codeathon judges will conduct reviews and select the top entries in 12 categories.

Codeathon teams can work on any type of project (web apps, mobile apps, wearable solutions, data visualizations, algorithms, or visual mock-ups, for example). Challenges are posted to GoCodeSA.com/challenges and will focus on public transportation. Participants can choose to work on a provided challenge, but are not limited to them. Projects will be judged on impact, innovation, and technical achievement.
