DEVELOPERWEEEK SPONSOR HACKATHON CHALLENGES & PRIZES

TypingDNA

What would you build if you could recognize people by the way they type?

1st Place: $2000 + 6 months TypingDNA Pro License (worth $500)

2nd Place: $1000 + 6 months TypingDNA Pro License (worth $500)

Questions - Contact: Developers@typingdna.com

Show us what you’d build given that you CAN recognize people based on their typing.

Did you know that your typing is unique?

At TypingDNA, we’ve developed technology that is able to authenticate people based on how they type on their keyboards — both on mobile devices and desktop computers. Check out our website demo to see it in action! https://www.typingdna.com/#demo

We encourage you to be brave and think out-of-the-box. With no barriers to creativity, your project could even showcase how aliens use TypingDNA authentication to make sure that the alien they are messaging is who they claim to be.

What to build: You are free to build anything (it must be functional, like a website or an app), as long as your project includes TypingDNA API calls.

Judging Criteria:

Innovation: How creative or innovative is the idea behind the project? Is the outlined solution crafted in a compelling and unique method?

UX: Is the overall user experience intuitive? Does it flow smoothly or is it cumbersome and challenging to use?

Impact: To what extent does the proposed solution solve a real-world problem? Is the project addressing an issue that impacts people’s lives?

Technical Implementation: How technically complex is your project? How well was the idea executed and what is the degree of difficulty?
