The Open Fort were proud to sponsor locally founded initiative Hacktivate which pits coders against coders in an exciting competitive format that is just as exciting for spectators.  A Premiere Digital Sport since 2012, Hacktivate events gather exceptional programming talent, showcasing it to a live audience in a highly visual, fast paced format.

The theme for the July 2015 event was Battleships, with teams of coders creating artificial intelligence algorithms to play against their competitors.

We created a battleship themed card-based meta game to be played in the background of the event and increase social interaction between spectators as well as competitors to add to the vibrant atmosphere of the event.

“One of sticking points throughout our event was “which card do you have?” Such an incredible idea!
The Open Fort really pulled through on creating an engaging challenge for the audience to play during the night.”

It was an exciting event to experience and to be a part of – well done to the Hactivate team and keep an eye out for their Asia Tournament coming up!

Here’s a video of how the event went down:
