We’re kickstarting the innovation challenge from this Saturday (19th September) until next Sunday (27th September).
Key things to remember:
1. Grab your bot for Hackathon
If you’ve already signed up at hackathon.yellowmessenger.com you can use the blank bot that was provisioned to your account on September 17th. It is best to delete all current journeys (if any) and start fresh to erase any pre-existing configuration during your learning and testing phase.
If you require any support during the hackathon from our team members, please connect with us via our community.
Any announcements will be posted directly on the community. You can respond back in the same thread and we’ll answer your queries.
Your queries on bot building, platform, bot related debugging will be answered by our studio and platform developers.
In case you’re restructuring your team, you don’t need to notify us in advance. While submitting your bot, you can give us details of your team and team members. This will be final.
3. Additional information:
How to select a category and what is expected
There are 4 categories within which you can submit your bot
A write up on each category can be found here
Select a specific or a high-level problem you’d like to solve through conversational AI
Build the bot and identify a way to use many features of the platform. You can also add custom integrations to the bot.
Note: You’re free to use any APIs you have access to (free/open-source APIs, as well as paid APIs).
Bot ID: The bot ID can be pulled from the URL itself on accessing your bot from app.yellowmessenger.com 4. URL sample: https://app.yellowmessenger.com/#/a/ [ x1582541659467 ] /ai/journeys. The part highlighted in brackets within the URL is your bot ID
How to provide admin access: Just head over to the configuration tab (gear icon), click on access control and add new users.
A video walkthrough of the problem you’re trying to solve, and an explanation of the bot and its features (2 to 5 minutes)
(Not mandatory, but good to have) - a detailed doc with screenshots on your problem statement, your implementation strategy, why you chose the problem you chose, why you decided to omit using certain features
A quick write up about every member of your team, your background, if you’ve attended any hackathons priorly, why you decided to participate in our hackathon, any past experience with conversational AI, etc
