DATES AND TIMING

Bizagi 2020 Hackathon Submission Period: October 19, 2020 (9:00am EST) – November 14, 2020 (5:00pm EST)

Judging Period: November 16, 2020 – November 20, 2020

Winners Announced: The first week of December 2020 


CATEGORIES

The Bizagi 2020 Hackathon will have three main categories where you can prove your skills. The three categories are:

Most Innovative Bizagi Widget

Widgets are specialized controls with predefined properties oriented toward a specific business requirement. Such properties promote reusability, in such a way that Widgets can be easily bound to any business model. This category aims to explore your creativity and give you space to create new ways to display information within Bizagi.

Most Innovative Bizagi Connector

One of the most outstanding alternatives to invoke external services from your Bizagi project is Bizagi Connectors. Through Bizagi Connectors, you may easily rely on powerful features to connect to other systems and applications, especially to those using modern architecture. This category aims to explore your creativity and allow you to extend the integration functionalities within Bizagi with the creation of new connectors.

Most Innovative Experience-Centric Process

The Bizagi Experience Design concept is oriented to offer a unique experience to each one of your end-users and best address the unstructured processes of your organization. Unstructured processes are those which you may catalog as non-routine, highly unpredictable, or dynamic, mainly because the course of action is not known beforehand, it emerges during process execution and depends on the information available. When working with these types of processes, real customization comes when Experience-Centric processes are combined with Bizagi Sites, where you can create rich and ready-to-go sites for your stakeholders. This category is intended to design and build a process focused on experience with its corresponding site as a solution to a current problem.
