Fri, 17 Feb 2017, 18:00 – Sun, 19 Feb 2017, 19:00 GMT
Come and experience an event of a lifetime at the Ulster Bank #BankOfAPIs Hackathon! Ulster Bank is excited to announce its annual Hackathon, in partnership with Dogpatch Labs. Spend 48 intense hours collaborating in a team of coders, designers, entrepreneurs and business people to create a working prototype to showcase. Come with a cool idea and watch it come to life within a short span of time.
Themes & Challenges?
The brief is to deliver innovative solutions around themes of financial services to enable ‘open banking’. Open banking is the vision that banks are transforming from relatively closed IT structures to structures that are more ‘open’, connected and better able to communicate with each other. This will lead to improved levels of service by enriching the banks capability with a whole range of targeted niche solutions in addition to broader personal financial management capability.

Let’s get started!
Come and pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members. Or join a team whose idea you want to work on. Spend the two days building a working prototype and a solid pitch to support it. Finally, present to senior business leaders in Banking and Technology to stand a chance to win super cool prizes.
Happy to support you!
There will be on-ground support. Engineers will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch. RBS’s banking API sandbox ‘BlueBank’ will also be available for you to integrate with and test what your app can do with real world bank data.
In the end, a great couple of days will be had with food, drinks, ideas, and all the works. The only requirement is to come with a lot of bright ideas and enthusiasm!
