1. Do I need to pay any money to register for the Hackathon?

No. You do not have to pay anything to anyone to register yourself for any Hackathon on HackerEarth.

2. Do I need to have any specific qualifications to be a participant for the Hackathon?

If you love to code, you are more than welcome to participate in the Hackathon.

3. Who is judging this?

The judges will be a mix of healthcare experts and technical experts. Not all of the judges are developers. You should take that into account as you develop your solution.

4. How do I submit what I have made for the Hackathon?

  1. Create a URL (or Video walk-through) that allows the judges to test your application running in your environment (preferred). OR
  2. Create a full TAR/.zip with full instructions for running and a demo script. Please include an explanation of your solution.

5. Do we need to have the entire idea fully working?

No, you do not have to have a fully functioning solution. All prototypes will be assessed. The entire idea should be logical and have enough code to demo for the judges. You should be able to record a video walk-through of the idea for the judges.

6. What is the recommended submission?

We are looking for prototypes that can be demonstrated to healthcare professionals. It does not need to meet healthcare compliance rules to be eligible. It does need to address at least one of the healthcare challenges at a demonstration level, which means a minimum viable product (MVP). We do not expect a ready-to-deploy solution.

7. How do I get access to the OpenText Information Management APIs?

You will need to sign up for a free 90-day trial. Here is the link: OpenText IMServices Trial. If your solution also needs Internet of Things (IoT) data management, you can use our IoT developer platform free trial. Here is the link: IoT Developer Platform Trial. If your solution needs an analytical database, you can use OpenText Vertica for free. Here is the link: OpenText Vertica Free Trial.

8. How is the environment? Will your environment support any language? Will you provide any IDE and DB for us to work on ideas?

You have to develop the entire software application. For the OpenText IM services, OpenText Cloud Platform uses RESTful APIs. You will be responsible for integrating the services into your solution. For more information on how OCP authenticates client applications, see here: OpenText IMServices Developer Concepts.

9. Does one have to be online and available for the entire duration of the Hackathon?

No, one does not need to be logged in on HackerEarth or be online for the entire duration. You can develop the application on your local system based on the given themes and then submit it on HackerEarth, on the specific challenge page.

10. Beyond the specific technology mentioned, are there any restrictions on using a number of pre-built libraries?

There is no restriction on using any language, technology stack, or libraries. You can use whatever library or runtime environment you are comfortable with to create the web application or mobile application. As mentioned in the judging criteria, the only requirement is that the solution includes at least cloud API services from OpenText. You have full control over any other technology that you wish to include.

11. Do I need to give a demo for the product that I have built? (see Q3 for more information)

If you want, you can submit a small presentation or video that demos your submission. However, it's not mandatory, but it is recommended. In case you are one of the winners, you will be given the option to demo the solution for business leaders who may be interested in working further with you. This will be completely voluntary on your part, and the timing will be negotiated if you are interested.

12. A fully developed application needs to have a solid backend for data storage like SQL, etc. since it's online, is it accepted to show only the prototype of it?

Yes, it's absolutely fine to submit just the prototype. Although not required, part of the OpenText includes Object storage as well as Vertica (a data management tool for relational data). However, you are allowed to submit just the prototype or simply a walk-through of the user flow and video confirmation that you have created the code that runs the demonstration.

13. If it is a team submission, does that mean all team members will have access to work at the same time?

No, you can define how you work. All team members can log in from their account and do application submission on HackerEarth.

14. Who will own the IP (Intellectual Property) Rights to the product that I have built?

The developer/developers of the application will have all rights and own the IP of the product. However, either the code or a working demo (see Q3 and Q8) is necessary for evaluation.
