Alice Urban Skills Hackathon Starts January 13th

The Yandex.Dialogue team invites developers to a thematic online hackathon to create Alice’s skills, which is held jointly with the Ministry of Digital Development and Information and Communication Technologies of the Novgorod Region.

Usually hackathons are held in the format “to do everything in one day”, but this time the participants will have three weeks of real pumping. During the hackathon, they will have time to listen to lectures and participate in practical seminars from Alice’s team, significantly improve their skills in developing voice interfaces and communicate with like-minded people.

Participants will develop skills that will improve the infrastructure of Veliky Novgorod and facilitate the daily affairs of its residents.

The hackathon will take place online, so everyone from any city is invited. Perhaps the participants can learn from the hackathon experience to develop skills in their city.

All participants will receive electronic certificates that they have completed a course of lectures and seminars on the development of voice interfaces. The best developers, as always, will receive prizes, as well as mementos from the Government of the Novgorod Region.

Participation is free, but registration is required.
