Each team will be given four hours to create a solution for a project that has yet to be revealed. Following a presentation to a panel of judges, the first place winners of the event will receive a coveted paid internship at Rural Sourcing, which has been recognized as one of 100 top organizations selected for Computerworld’s 2016 Best Places to Work in IT.
