2 Prizes at Once!

3 days are all we need, for our students to demonstrate their outstanding coding skills!

At the recently concluded “3 Days of Code” Hackathon organized by Multimedia University (MMU), we are proud to share that 2 of our student teams – team ‘KarmaPoints’ and team ‘VRoomFor2’ walked away as the Champion and 1st Runner Up teams, earning 2 awards at once!

The “3 Days of Code” Hackathon is an event that combines coding competition and hackathon to gauge students’ programming and problem solving skills. Organised annually by the IT Society of MMU Cyberjaya, this competition was open to all undergraduate students from Malaysian private and public universities. At the competition, students were expected to demonstrate teamwork to propose solutions for systems in the fields of Transport, Education or Finance.

Team ‘KarmaPoints’ developed an innovative mobile app that allows users to collect loyalty points via services and to donate them to charity organisations, whereas team ‘VRoomFor2’ invented a matchmaking and ride-hailing platform that combines the concepts of organizing dates without worrying on the issues of mobility.

 

Both teams walked away with cash prizes of RM1,000 and RM750 respectively. CONGRATULATIONS to team ‘KarmaPoints’ and team ‘VRoomFor2’!
