It's time for the 2022 Forge Hackathon! We can't wait to see the innovative Forge solutions and fun projects you're bringing to the game. We said the prizes were better than ever, but would you believe us without proof? Each year we strive to find prizes that coders both want and need, and we'd like to think we came through again this year.
There's still time to sign up for the Forge Hackathon to make it in time for Pitch Day on Monday, September 19.
As a reminder, these are the challenges you're coming ready to crush:
For the love of the 3D game!
Get creative with the three.js library and build a fun game we'll never want to put down. Bonus points will be awarded for using the Forge Viewer.
Show me the Data!
The Forge Data APIs let you share the right data with the right teams at the right time. As a developer, you can access the underlying cloud APIs to power your custom apps and workflows. We want to see the creative ways you can make data work for you and your teams.
I feel the need, the need for Digital Twin!
How smart or innovative is your digital twin? Is it something no one has ever seen before? Bonus points will be awarded for using the Data Visualization extensions for the Forge Viewer, and for making sure your digital twin is as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible.
Task automation is a state of mind
How many tedious, manual processes can be automated? Use the Forge Design Automation APIs to help you automate repetitive tasks, freeing up time and energy to focus on more complex workflows.
There is no place like ACC
Autodesk Construction Cloud connects workflows, teams, and data at every stage of construction to reduce risk, maximize efficiency, and increase profits. If you're tackling this challenge, you'll get to take full advantage of the team that brought you ACC.
Hack the planet!
The Forge toolbox enables you to deliver insights to realize more sustainable outcomes for the future. Use Forge APIs to:
- build dashboards focused on increasing your sustainability score
- connect materials databases
- calculate carbon footprints
- link to LCA platforms
and more! Unlock data from Fusion, Revit, and other tools to create a holistic sustainable solution.
And now for the fun stuff:
