A GAME OF TWO HALVES

The EPIC Tournament is a game of two halves: a coding challenge and a hackathon.

The first half is the two-week coding challenge, where you’ll form talented teams or work individually to share your coding skills with the world and represent your region!

Then 16 lucky winning teams or individuals will move on to the second half; The Remote Work Force Hackathon, where they’ll have ten days to build a unique solution to help remote workers around the world – and the chance to win the EPIC Tournament!

The 16 teams will then present their solutions to a panel of industry experts and technology leaders to compete for three cash prizes.
