IBM Coding Challenge

IBM and Pragyan presents IBM Coding challenge : an application development contest coupled with series of seminars and tutorials on app development by IBM.

Problem statement :

Some example domains are: Education, entertainment, transport, financial markets, networking, health or anything of the participants choice.

The apps can be developed in Java, Node.js, Python, Ruby etc. The only condition is that these apps must be developed & deployed on IBM's Platform as a service called IBM Bluemix.
