Andela 2023 EPIC Tournament for Savvy African Techies ($10 000k Cash Prize)

As 2022 draws to a close, it’s time to level up the playing field for the year ahead – and have some fun in the process. Andela’s EPIC Tournament is the techie tournament of a lifetime, and we want you to join our global premier league. Upskill in coding, grow your community, and win up to $10,000 USD in cash prizes with the EPIC Tournament! Back of the net!

The EPIC Code Tournament is a game of two halves: a coding challenge and a hackathon.

The first half is the two-week coding challenge, where you’ll form talented teams or work individually to share your coding skills with the world and represent your region!

Then 16 lucky winning teams or individuals will move on to the second half; The Remote Work Force Hackathon, where they’ll have ten days to build a unique solution to help remote workers around the world – and the chance to win the Epic Code Tournament!

The 16 teams will then present their solutions to a panel of industry experts and technology leaders to compete for three cash prizes.
