About CodeFest Competition

Every year across the country, programmers, project managers, graphic designers, and others within the software development industry come together to participate in hackathons.  These are weekend getaways for the technically minded and UWF is proud to be hosting this event.  This weekend-long event invites students from around the region to come together and work with professional mentors to develop a product.  That's 36 hours from an idea to a demo!  This is a great way for students to learn and network with other students, professors, and community leaders.

THEME > MAKING SMART DECISIONS

While projects must be focused on a central theme, there is no limit on the technologies that can be used to create the product. We welcome any ideas that correspond with the theme.

The idea behind this year’s theme is to enable smart decision making. Examples can include providing decision making support, presenting information or data to a user, helping with personal productivity, creating smart environments, or better educating an individual to make smart choices.

The main areas of primary interest include:

  • Smart cities, homes, and communities
  • Helping individuals remain secure whether physically or in cyberspace
  • Supporting an individual’s general well-being and health
  • Improving personal or organizational productivity

As long as your idea fits within the theme then feel free to try new and interesting ideas! This is an event for anything your mind can think of!
