Software Design Competition with Caterpillar: Final Judging and Awards

November 13, 2020 — 5-6 PM

(Posted on 2020-11-13)

Test your skills at designing and implementing software! This is the finale of a 3-event series.

What is SDC?

The Software Design Competition, or SDC for short, is like a more realistic hackathon. Students are tasked with designing a piece of software to solve a problem. They then create a concept and prototype a solution to fit the requirements of the problem.

This year we have $1400 in prizes. (see below for details)

How does it work?

The competition is spread over two weeks (and one day). During the first week, competitors ideate and design their concept. Competitors can use the second week to implement a prototype of their idea. Everything comes together on the third Friday for final judging.

What do I need to participate?

Participation is absolutely free to any UMN student! All you need is a computer, some spunk, and a handful of good ideas.
