“At Pega, we believe that software is the key to helping business and society adapt to the rapid changes and increasing complexity the world is facing on a daily basis,” said Stephanie Louis, senior director, community and developer programs, Pega. “We want to give anyone with an idea the ability to act on it — regardless of if they are a professional developer or if they have never written a line of code. Our hackathon participants will be empowered with our visual and intuitive low-code environment that levels the playing field for all makers so they can bring their ideas to life. We look forward to being inspired by their creativity and recognizing their innovations this October.”
“The Pega Community Hackathon presents a unique chance to develop creative solutions for interesting problems,” said Alex Vargo, director, technical consulting, srcLogic. “Last year, my team used this opportunity to get hands-on experience with some of the more advanced features of Pega that we don’t get to work with on a daily basis, gaining us valuable experience and knowledge to take back to our clients.”
