Description

In memory of Andrew Otero, a Sparta Global technology consultant who sadly passed away this year, we are holding a Hackathon event 'Speak Out' to support charity Calm, which provides a free helpline and online chat for men with mental health issues.

Please sign-up to be a part of this hackathon contest - where a challenge will be set and teams will compete by creating some technology throughout the day to donate to the charity partner.

The event will take place at the offices of IG - who have kindly donated their space for this event.

The schedule will be as follows:

  • 10:00 - Arrive

  • 10:15 - Introduction from mother of Andrew Otero

  • 10:30 - Challenge is set and hackathon begins

  • 13:00 - Lunch (Provided by Sparta Global)

  • 17:00 - Hackathon ends and pizza + beer provided by Sparta Global, technology is presented by the teams

  • 18:00 - Awards provided to 1st, 2nd, 3rd teams by judging panel consisting of senior technology representative from IG and Jet2, Tech Director - Sparta Global, representative from Calm.

Thank you to all the partners involved in this event who have helped us to make it happen, to Andrew's mum for being a part of it, and the developers coming along on the day.

This is a cause that is close to us and we would like to make this an annual event.

THANK YOU.
