Rootcode debuts Sri Lanka’s first ever Tech-Triathlon combining engineering, design and AI

Rootcode, a global software engineering company committed to building great tech, is hosting Sri Lanka's first-ever Tech-Triathlon, a competition that combines Engineering, User Experience (UX), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to upskill the next generation and foster a strong tech community in the country.

The competition received 1180 registered participants from students all over the island. The aim of the Tech-Triathlon is to provide a platform where tech enthusiasts get to experience how modern products are built and also compete to win the title.

The first stage is a designathon, where participants will design a solution to the given challenge. The next stage is a hackathon, where they will develop a part of a software application, and then in the third stage, datathon, participants will tackle a data and AI challenge. Winners will be chosen based on their combined performance in all three stages.

A grand finale and awards ceremony will be held to celebrate the winners of the Tech-Triathlon on the 2nd of September, where the finalist teams will present their solution to a panel of judges from Rootcode, and the winners will be crowned.

Rootcode has also prepared exciting prize pools to reward the Tech-Triathlon winners, where the winning team will receive a cash prize of LKR 500,000, while the first runners-up will be awarded LKR 200,000, and the second runners-up will receive LKR 100,000.

Apart from the cash prizes, winners will also get a chance to receive consultation from the Rootcode team on how to win in their careers. Winning teams of the Tech-triathlon will also have the opportunity to be fast-tracked for their internships. Additionally, it will go on to recognize the teams’ achievements, and their work will be spotlighted on their Tech-Triathlon website.

Modern software development doesn’t happen in isolation. To build a successful digital product, you need great engineering, design, and also AI. These 3 pillars, combined, give us the chance to craft a winning product.

Over the years, Rootcode has helped many businesses build and release successful digital products. One main reason behind its success story is the strong collaboration between the three divisions, Rootcode Labs, Rootcode Studio, and Rootcode AI, bringing in great engineering, Design, and AI to build winning products.
