Overview

It is with immense pleasure that Oakridge International School announces the Oak Codefest, a programming competition that will be held on the 18th and 19th of January, 2020.

We strive to develop a platform for students of ever-increasing technical caliber from the secondary segment to mould and showcase their skills to the world. The selected themes are of significant domestic and global importance, and all these developers would be working towards solutions to real-world problems. Throughout the event, they would be collaborating and growing to attain that goal. Given that this is no easy task, the Codefest will be held for 24 hours, over the span of the entire night until the following day. The entire experience intends to be as rich, fulfilling and remarkable as possible, and I sincerely hope you will encourage your students to be a part of it.

Themes

Participants are recommended to use two or more themes for their project but are expected to choose one primary theme.

Just to clarify all themes are open from 6 to 8th grades while only the first four themes are open for 9th to 12th grades, Game development is exclusive for 6th to 8thth graders

Security

Humans are today, more vulnerable from threats from all sort of sources. Be it in the society, natural calamities, cyber domain or any other form of hazard. However the massive advancement of technology, easy access to internet and a highly connected digital world offers us a chance to tackle these threats in newer and much better ways. Build applications that make this world a more secure place.

Gaming

As of 2015, the gaming industry is worth 111 billion dollars. And while console games are still preferred by most avid gamers today, the number of PC and mobile gamers are equally high. With close to a million games on both Android and iOS, games are the most popular category of apps on the mobile platform. Multiplayer and web enabled games on PC has only seen more adoption year on year. And to think that both these platforms are less than 10 years old only means one thing - there’s a huge wave coming for mobile developers. Are you going to ride it?

Transportation

Humans, around the world, commute millions of miles every single day. A significant fraction of our day is spent in traveling. Technology has played a very significant role in enabling more people to commute. Be it in the form discovery, aggregation or purchase, technology has redefined the way we commute. Imagine how technology can human experience even better in day to day transportation and commute. What can technology do make public and private transportation much simpler.

Internet of Things

A world of devices connected by internet opens up opportunities for us that were previously unthinkable. The fact that devices can now be connected to each other, share data and take intelligent decisions by talking to other devices can disrupt the way we interact with our surroundings. Build applications on Internet of Things that help us improve our experience in our day to day life.

Data Analytics

“Data is the new oil” is a famous phrase to illustrate the importance that transactions, payments or behavioral data generated by all of us can have; big data promises to reveal patterns, trends, or associations to help organizations be more accurate in their interactions.
