Calling All Developers to Join our CX Hackathon 2017

Laurie Pattison
Senior Director

Have we got a deal for you! Come hack a Smarter Customer Experience at the Modern CX Hackathon on 29-30 September in San Francisco.  If you’re already coming to OpenWorld 2017, this is a perfect opportunity to come a few days early and get your hands on some Oracle Cloud services, and access to experts to help you understand and integrate them. But don't worry, this hackathon is open to non-OpenWorld registrants as well!

The Challenge

Create an amazing Customer Experience solution using Oracle Cloud Applications & Platform services. You can build whatever you want, but you should integrate at least three Cloud Services and come up with a compelling use case. 

What you’ll have to work with

We’ll provide access for the duration of the hackathon to some great Cloud Services, including:

  • Oracle Engagement Cloud
  • Cloud Infrastructure and Cloud Platform
  • Mobile Enterprise & Intelligent Bots
  • Cloud Services for Compute VMs, Containers
  • Java, Node.js, and Databases
  • Oracle Responsys
  • Internet of Things Applications
  • Big Data Cloud Service
  • Content and Experience Cloud

Expert help

Oracle will have experts on hand to help you out with advice and tips on both the functionality and how to integrate the Cloud Services.  


Come with a sense of adventure, some technical chops and a strong use case and create your solution. The only real requirement we’ll check is that you need to be at least 21 to participate.

How can I win?

Get a team together and register, or just show up on your own and find a team when you get there. A winning team typically has a good mix of skills, so do your best to find someone whose skills complement yours.  Check out this 2 Minute Tech Tip on how to win a hackathon.

The winning team will present at the Oracle OpenWorld 2017 CX Keynote on Tuesday, October 3.

Tell me more!

This is a 2+ day event.  We’ll kick off the morning of Friday, Sept 29 and freeze code Sunday morning, Oct. 1 at 8 am.   You won’t starve.  Oracle will provide food and drinks, and even an opportunity to network with your fellow hackers.

The hackathon will take place at the CapGemini Applied Innovation Exchange space on Brannan Street.

Check out the hackathon website, sign up and get ready to hack a Modern Customer Experience!
