    Looking to get engaged with your local PUG? Love a good competition? Get connected to your local PUG to receive more details on this exciting challenge coming soon!

    PUG members will be invited to form hackathon teams with the purpose of creating and submitting a Power BI app for the competition. Teams will compete with others in their respective communities to win top honors and prizes. Participating teams will publish their solutions to a shared tenant to make their apps available to the full community. Apps will be judged by the local PUG community members (online) based on criteria set by the organizers. The top winning team of each local PUG will be entered into the Global Hackathon Championship to be voted on by the larger, global PUG community.

    Teams must be signed up by April 30!


    Can you hack it? Build your team today and sign up with your local PUG leader by April 30 to gain recognition, prestige, and bragging rights as Global Hackathon Champion

    *PUG Leaders: Sign up your PUG to host a local PUG Hackathon Challenge here.

    It looks like the deadline for the volunteer opportunity was April 1st, but here it says April 30th, am I looking in the wrong place?

    Also when I click on the rules and regulations link in the volunteer opportunity it says I'm not authorized. :)

    Thanks for your help!

    I think PUG Hackathon Challenge Signup deadline for PUG Leaders is 30th March 2018, interested PUG Leaders can signup for the challenge & between 1st to 30th April 2018 they can finalize & enroll teams.

    So how to sign up in the Hackathon Competition ?
    The sign up page has option only to sign up as a volunteer which its deadline passed, no longer accepting volunteers!

    Hi Ashraf !

    PUG Leaders can sing up for the volunteer opportunity to run a PUG Hackathon challenge within their PUG.

    If your PUG Leader has missed the deadline you can write to Jena to register your PUG for PUG Hackathon challenge & register teams within your PUG by April 30, 2018
