Join Now!
Join the hackathon for Dynamics 365 Business Central. Build or join the team and submit ideas for the AL challenge.
welcome to coding4bc.com
Submit the ideas for the challenge
Everyone can submit the idea for the hackathon. Ideas need to be connected with Dynamics 365 Business Central. Think about what you are missing in the system and what would make value for users and the community. Does the solution need to be done only in the AL language? Of course not! Surprise the community and work on something special!
Build or join the existing team
Teams can be the size of 1 up to 6 people. You can join the team during the hackathon kick-off or you can bring your team to this event. Each team can work on one chosen idea.
This is a great opportunity to meet new people from the whole World or learn more about your team when working on something which will be fun for all.

Hackathon will be an online event. Each team will get access to a private room on zoom.us and will be able to collaborate.

When and how long?

The event will take place on the 18th and 19th of November. Teams will have 48 hours to build the solution. On the 20th of November, there will be an official presentation and results announcement. Take a look at the roadmap for the event.

For whom?

The event is for all who want to take part in the challenge. It is good to have the knowledge about Dynamics 365 Business Central and AL language if the idea on which you will work required so. However, you do not need to be a developer – you need to be able to help your team to reach the goal. So if you are a developer, consultant, tester, or system architect the event is for you!

WHY Join the Hackathon?
Make a step forward
The Hackathon is a great opportunity for you or for your team to grow. It is a fantastic learning opportunity when working closely with your team and people who have experience in Business Central.
Present your ideas
You can find out what others think about your ideas. During the hackathon, you have the opportunity to present them to a bigger audience. Not only the other participants but also judges. Each team after the development phase will need to show the solution to all other participants.
Learning new things
Normally you do not have time to learn something new about Business Central? The hackathon is a good time to work on something which you like. It is also a good time to share knowledge between team members and others who also works with Business Central.
Meet the people who work with Business Central every day. You will be able to join the team with people you may not know. That gives you the possibility to get to know new community members.

The maximum number of team members is 6. However, it is possible to join the hackathon with a smaller team or just by yourself. During the kick-off, all without the team will be assigned to not full teams.

For sure you need to have a good internet connection since the event is online. Other things depend on your role in the team. Development should be done in your local environments so the setup docker and newest container with BC should be enough to start but it also depends on the project which you choose.

There are no costs to attend the hackathon. Everyone is welcome.

First of all to have great fun and network with the community which still growing. Another goal is to build something which can help others (customers, community, etc.) when working with Business Central.

That is not decided yet. This is why we ask for the preferred time zone to see what will suit the best for all who want to join. Also, we will try to group people in the teams (if needed) in similar time zones.
