The IATA NDC Hackathon
Baseline: “Take airline retailing to the next level”
The NDC Hackathon gathers a series of workshops around leisure and business travel and provides the unique opportunity to pitch the winning ideas to an audience of airline executives and 600+ travel industry professionals at IATA’s World Passenger Symposium in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Developers will be asked to use at least one of the NDC APIs and address at least one of the challenges around leisure or business travel through a competition that will provide 28 hours to code. In parallel, developers will be able to attend some of the workshops that will take place on-site and have access to mentors that will guide them through the Hackathon.
Get ready for a fast-paced brainstorming and hacking session with some of the smartest and most creative students and professionals in Asia Pacific. Join as an individual or as a team of up to 5 to build new and innovative travel-centric applications that will improve customer experience.
