Read the problem statement below and fill in the application form. 12 participants will be selected to join professional UI/UX coders, design thinkers, behaviour science experts and gamification experts to participate in the Hackathon to be held on 8 & 9th February 2020.
Finalists will be notified via email on 1st February.
Come…. collaborate…. create….
In a highly globalised world where businesses look for multiple skill sets, being multilingual is an asset. As trade with China grows, Mandarin has become the foreign language to know for Indian professionals and traders doing business with China. Many of those who have already learnt Mandarin however are finding it difficult to stay in touch with the language due to time constraints.
How do you propose for those who have already learnt Mandarin to tackle the issue of being better engaged with the language and its community?
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Problem solvers who bring a new perspective to the table. Ideally must have some experience or interest in behaviour science, foreign language acquisition and must come armed with mean skills in UI/UX, gamification, programming, graphic design skills.
