A technician creates software to order tickets for a show in 6 hours
In 6 hours, Nguyen Ngoc Hai Dang, born in 1996, filled out an application to book tickets to shows and won the top prize in the Hack2Hire contest.
Hai Dang was awarded a special prize at the One Mountain Hack2Hir competition stage last weekend. The young engineer’s theme is “Set up a subscription program to watch shows in 6 hours” thanks to the right, intuitive interface, a smooth operation with all the necessary functions such as information and communication. View information, authenticate users. Information, seats, book tickets, cancel tickets… Dang is one of the four participants who have the best and most complete product in this competition.
When Dang first entered a hackathon, the challenge was streamlining the tasks, he said. “I use the time I have to work on the product, but I still take breaks to recover so I don’t run into problems and find more efficient solutions,” Dang said.
In the software writing process, young engineers first create parts for the main working process, then the environmental conditions to control errors. With experience as a front-end developer, Dang breaks down the application into smaller components and then assembles them into a complete interface. “Candidates only need basic UI/UX knowledge, and the ability to handle ticketing situations is enough to pass the exam,” says Dang.
Candidates appreciate that writing products in a hackathon gives them the pressure to see other people code passionately, but in return they can learn from the experience and share knowledge with competitors. , there are other talented programmers.
“The test is neither too hard nor too easy, and given enough time, anyone can easily pass it,” Dang said. But to win the top prize, it must share product development logic, testing capabilities, and methods to make the product more palatable to the judges.
Mr. Dinh Viet Hung, Director of Technology and Data at One Mountain Corporation, assessed that the quality of young engineers in Vietnam is improving. “After 6 hours of testing, many products are 90-95% complete, the results are very convincing,” he judged. However, in order to achieve good results in such competition, according to him, programmers need not only software development thinking, but also innovation in the field of technology, the ability to solve development problems.gim. This was shown by the results of Hai Dang and some other participants.
Hack2Hire is the first hackathon organized by One Mountain with more than 600 registered participants who were born between 1995 and 2003 and are 65% engineers with 35% student experience.
In the first round, 600 participants had to take a 60-minute online aptitude test on the Coderbyte platform with multiple choice questions and a coding test to measure basic programming skills. More than 120 participants who scored 90% and above advanced to the second round and participated in the program competition in Hanoi.
In addition to the Hai Dang Special Prize, the competition’s first prize went to Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son (b. 2000), two second prizes to Nguyen Anh Duy (1998), Dinh The Hiep (1999), and three third prizes. Locations Nguyen Thanh Hoa (1999), Mai Duc Duy (1996) and Vu Long Vu (2003). In addition, competitor Bui Dai Dung (2003) received two awards from Fanika University for Program Student and Best Use of Technology.
