Madrugadão Feevale 2015 : An entire night of coding with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform
On October 6th and 7th, the SAP University Alliances team, together with SAP Labs Latin America and SAP Co-Innovation Lab, participated on Madrugadão Feevale 2015. The event is hosted by Universidade Feevale, one of the most important universities in SAP Labs LAC region. The event consists in a competition where 40 students had to solve a programming challenge during an entire night of coding inside the university.
This year, University Feevale invited SAP to be the costumer of the event. It means that SAP decided the challenge and which technology would be available for the students to work with during the night.
Students used a health open source database from the Brazilian Federal Government, which is composed of more than 30 million lines. SAP Labs Latin America with the collaboration of the SAP Co-Innovation Lab provided the SAP HANA Cloud Platform for all ten teams to work with during the competition.
One week before the event all competitors received an entire day of training on the HCP platform, in order to get the best results during the challenge.
Thanks to the employees who volunteered to coach students and a special thanks to the SAP Co-Innovation Lab for helping us provide all the technical support and expertise at the event!
