In 2017, BCA comes back with its program Finhacks, which stands for Financial Hackathon. Finhacks is a hackathon event organized by BCA, which accommodates IT developers or practitioners to gather, collaborate, and innovate in creating new financial applications. The event is a solid proof of BCA’s concern on the development of digital world in banking and financial industry in line with the rapidly changing technology.
In contrast to previous hackathon, this year, #Codescape is used as the new tagline of the event – derived from the word code and escape, an event which aims to allow IT developers and practitioners to refresh their mind from their daily routines in order to generate creative coding breakthroughs. #Codescape could also mean code and landscape, where they gather at BCA Learning Institute in Sentul, situated in a beautiful green area and far from the hustle-bustle of the city.
Also in contrast to Finhacks 2016, prior to taking place on 26 - 27 August 2017, a Mini Finhacks was held in three different cities (Surabaya, Yogyakarta, dan Bandung) which aimed to invite local developer communities to partake in the 2017 Finhacks. In every Mini Hacks, a sprint coding competition was held and five teams were selected to win a Golden Ticket to the final of Finhacks 2017, with a total grand prize of Rp 20 million.
In the 2017Finhacks, participants are given a challenging task to make an innovation to answer the following question “How can technology make the daily banking services easier, safer and more fun for the customer?”
