Iraq Hackathon was 52 hours event, and it is founded and organized by Plus the Edge Company for Business and Technology consultancy. Iraq Hackathon gathered all the creative individuals all over Iraq and gave them the opportunity to show up their ideas and got supports. It is where creative designers, coders, and web developers came together to bring an innovative idea to the country and solve a problem.

Iraq Hackathon was online hackathon where Plus the Edge used all of its resources to make this online hackathon happen. Plus the Edge used the official license of Adobe Connect which was used to do virtual meeting, training, and webinars.

During the hackathon 10 teams presented their business ideas that they have been working on for 72 hours. During each presentation, three judges were evaluating the business pitching process. The judges were using a custom platform that was entirely developed by Plus the Edge team.

It is worth mentioning that the judgin process was done through a custom web application developed entirely by Plus the Edge team. The platform provided with credentials for all judges to login into the system. Judges could see the list of the groups with places for putting points into different criterion. The platform was built with REST API architecture with ASP Core and SQL Server backed RDBMS with VUE JS framework in its front stack. With the facilitation that was provided by the platform, all the judgin process went very smoothly and successfully.

Furthermore, the entire process of digital marketing of the event was managed by Marketing team at Plus the Edge

Regarding his experience as a judge, Wolfgang Hinck, Vice President of Academic Affairs at The American University of Iraq, Sulaimany says,

I thought that Iraq Hackathon went very well from an event-management perspective, and I was also very impressed with the projects that were pitched to us, thank you and your whole team for making this happen
