When we released our Skylight Next-Gen Applications a few months ago, one of its goals was to make not only developing on Skylight easier, but to enable enterprise organizations to more quickly and easily solve their business problems by empowering their hands-on workforce. Skylight’s low-code tools can be used by any developer with just a basic knowledge of JavaScript. We want to show you how easy it is and see what problems you can solve for today’s workforce by developing your own connected worker app on Skylight.

That’s why we’re announcing today that we will be hosting a virtual Skylight Hackathon from December 14th-20th. We want to see how creative you can be in helping to solve the challenges businesses are facing to connect their workforce in the age of Industry 4.0 and digitalization. Registration is now open and will close on December 11th, so make sure to sign up for a chance to show off your ideas and win one of three cash prizes totaling $8,500. Don’t worry if you can’t accept the prize, we can also donate to your favorite charity if you choose to.

You can participate in the Hackathon either by using your existing Skylight domain (if it’s enabled for Next-Gen) or you can sign up for a free Skylight Developer Edition account when you register for the Hackathon. We’ve been hosting our own internal hackathons over the past couple of years (you can read about our most recent one here), and are excited to open this up to see what you can build in Skylight.

Here are some of the details:

When: December 14 – December 20

Where: The comfort of your own home

How: Use your existing Skylight domain or sign-up for our free Skylight Developer Edition when you register
