Following the latest announcements of the government of Luxembourg concerning the Coronavirus crisis, IT One took the decision to postpone the 2020 edition of Game of Code. Instead of taking place in June, the hackhaton will be organized on October 9th & 10th, at the Forum Campus Geesseknäppchen, in Luxembourg City.
As a reminder, coders and developers will meet for exciting challenges and spend 24 hours on several tech and coding challenges while expressing all their creativity in order to convince the jury members, sponsors of the event and IT experts.
Patrick Weber (Digital Government Innovation | AI | Distributed Ledger Tech | Open Data & Services, Ministry of Digitalization) will participate in this new edition of Game of Code, discussing the government's latest tech and digital initiatives, and officially opening the 2020 competition.
An Open Banking challenge, proposed by LUXHUB, will have the participants work on the creation of an innovative open banking application. They will be granted access to the testing environment of LUXHUB ONE – the company's account aggregation and payment initiation solution – and will attempt to ideate and implement a new integrated product based on real Open Banking use cases.
Just like the past year, Digital Luxembourg will have the coders work on an Open Data challenge. Teams are expected to create new apps, services and visualizations that make use of data from the Open Data Portal to improve the social cohesion of our digital society, for instance, in terms of mobility, healthcare, edition, etc.
A day 1 supporter of the event, Docler Holding Luxembourg will also participate with a Game App challenge. Developers will have to create a mobile game (native or web app) that delivers all the practical information and helpful tips and tricks expats and locals need for working/living in Luxembourg.
