Our industry is never static, but rather evolving. And you have to keep up or else you’ll be left far behind by those who are getting caught up!
There is a plethora of ways at your disposal to help you advance. Most IT professionals attend conferences and tutorials to get equipped with the necessary industry-level knowledge. Hackathons, however, take you a notch further to the finish line by providing you with a platform to put these skills to test! Are you really as good as you believe you are?
Find out by attending our Digital Commerce Hackathon on February 4th, 2018.
And here are just a few more reasons that would convince you to spend February 4th with us at e-Zest.
Online shopping has been the next big thing. We are sure you have ideas to make the experience for end users glitch free. Well here is your chance. What sets this platform apart from its predecessors is the theme - digital commerce - that is driven by the customer.
Why do you think most entrepreneurs are shifting gears and moving their business online? To save on shop space rent? Perhaps. But there is more. Customers enjoyed the convenience afforded by online shopping. Clearly, given the finger, they demanded the whole hand. They called for mobile applications so that they can shop for products and services on their commute to work and while on their travels. And business owners are absolutely loving the commerce. You can control the reins and make them both - the end buyers and the brands - happy.
A hackathon is one event where you are bound to run into many people who hail from the same field. People of all experience levels will congregate to come up with some unique solutions. This should be exciting for you. If you are a novice learner, you shall have the opportunity to learn from the more experienced; if you are experienced you can socialize with peers and if you are representing an entity you shall most certainly meet with leadership from other entities like yourself. So there is so much of learning exchange that would take place.
Have an issue, turn to your team mate. You certainly learn to be a team player at a hackathon. You learn to appreciate and accept the contribution others make to realize your collective ideas. Kiss your ego and comfort zone good-bye! A hackathon is a space for knowledge sharing for the common good.
And let’s not forget the possibility that you will be competing or collaborating with your future colleagues, co-founders, or manager even!
As deep as the Ocean
With a variety of skills to be used at a hackathon, you get to really explore the depths of your knowledge. In a short span of time you have to delve deep, learn by experimenting, and eventually find the solutions for your client within a stipulated deadline.
Hackathons allow you to try your hand at cutting edge technology, something that you might have access to only on the job. Creating something from scratch requires collaboration and dedication. You will be forced out of your comfort zone to give form to your ideas, that you didn’t even know that you were capable of realizing, all within an intense period of hackathon.
