Getting frustrated reading the COVID-19 news? Dismayed at the state of the world? Want to use your RPA and software development skills to help, but don’t know where to start? Automation Anywhere has just the opportunity for you.
Our COVID-19 Botathon is a chance for you to show off your RPA programming knowledge while helping to save the world. We’re looking for innovative intelligent automation solutions and ideas that can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate the effect on businesses and communities worldwide.
Entries can be submitted for five key suggested business areas (but we’ll accept all good solutions). Every submission will be judged by a panel of industry experts based on a standard set of criteria including impact, comprehensiveness, resiliency, and the reusability of the solution. The Botathon will run until June 3, 2020, and is open to developers worldwide.
Here are the five business categories you can enter:
The top-three winning entries will be awarded $5,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively. An additional $500 will be awarded to the five most promising entries submitted for the Botathon. All winners will be announced on June 11, 2020, at Imagine Digital, a 3-day virtual RPA and AI experience.
What’s more, we’ll contribute $25 for every Botathon submission (up to 100 submissions) to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, which supports the World Health Organization (WHO) in the fight against the pandemic.
Looking for collaborators? Go to the Participants tab and send a note to any other registered contestant to start building your team. We’ve also set up a dedicated discussion forum for all developers.
The COVID-19 Botathon is hosted on DevPost. Further details on entry and technical requirements can be found on the web page.
