Google Tech Challenge (GTC)

IAP 2021 is just around the corner, and we at 3DC have organised Google Tech Challenge! Google Tech Challenge comprises of a series of technical workshops to aid you in developing digital platforms, as well as a challenge.

Challenge Announcement

22/1/21 Update: We will be accepting submissions from "Introduction to Realtime Web Applications" IAP as well! To accommodate for this, we will also be extending the deadline for the GTC submission to 31st Jan.

We at 3DC believe in learning through hands-on. Therefore, we (optionally) challenge you (and your friends) to create your own application(s) either during or after the workshop, and submit them to us! Some ideas could be your own e-commerce platform or a club website! The best submission will win a Keychron K2 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard, while the 10 best submissions will receive $5 GrabFood vouchers!

For the challenge submission itself, there will be no sign-up form, just make sure you have signed up for at least one workshop and submit your code/application to us by 31nd January 2020. The submission link and scoring criteria can be found at the bottom of the page.

After you have finished any of our GTC workshops (Web, Android, Cloud or Telebot), you may submit your prototype/work you have done (either during or after workshops).

We are not expecting finished products or anything like that! Just apply the concepts you have learnt and show us what you've accomplished, you may stand to win a prize!

The scoring rules and criteria are as follows:

  1. Use at least one of the technologies from our workshops (Web, Android, Cloud, Telebot), or "Introduction to Realtime Web Applications" IAP, but you are free to use any other technologies in conjunction as well.
  2. Do not submit projects/work that has been started for some time already (i.e. no cheating)!
  3. We want to see good implementations of concepts learnt (can be on your own or during workshops)! Be creative!
  4. If you have multiple pieces of prototype/work (e.g. different workshops), please submit them together. Implementing multiple technologies well may help you score higher!
  5. Bonus points for cool ideas
