Applications for the three-round hackathon are currently open. In the first round, participants will have to clear multiple choice questions. Once they advance to the next round, they will receive a real-life healthcare problem statement and be asked to submit a presentation with a solution. In the final round, they will need to submit a working model of their solution. The hackathon will close on August 2, 2022. Prizes will be awarded to the winner and two runners-up. Developers who submit promising solutions may be interviewed for roles at NTT DATA.
