Satisfied with last year’s hackathon, this year we have decided to support the Brand New Engineers project, organized by EESTEC LC Belgrade.
At this year’s Hackathon held on December 14th and 15th at the premises of our company, 27 participants were divided into 6 teams. The participants were from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Faculty of Technical Sciences, the Faculty of Organizational Sciences, the Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Information Technology.
Initially Milen Janjic, Director of the Own Software Products Development Division, and Milan Jevtic, Director of the Software Division have spoken to the present.
Milen emphasized the importance of Hackathon and the education that participants receive through participation, but not the education that is taught in college, through the participants had the opportunity to learn how to create software that is used, stating that International Property Software involves a high level of creativity and the creation of new values .
The main theme of this year’s hackathon was Forming user segments in line with strategy (Unsupervised Learning). The Hakaton participants had mentors who were from our Machine Learning team and were available to them throughout the Hackaton: Milos Bijanic, Tamara Ciric and Srdjan Jovanovic. The very idea was that the participants were working on two realistic machine learning foundation projects that our colleagues were working on. Competitors were provided with the materials they needed to create a business case and technical solution.
