Teleios Code Jam 2018 - Presentation Day

Teams came up to Teleios Systems’ Head Office at 4 Queen’s Park West to present their solutions for this year’s Presentation Stage on Friday, September 21.

Presentations are judged by industry representatives, which this year included:

  • Dale Wilson. Chief Information Officer at TELEIOS

  • Lorenzo Hodges. CEO at Plain White Table, Inc.

  • Joan Petersen. Trinidad and Tobago Country Representative at CARDI

  • Learie Roberts. Marketing Manager at Massy Technologies InfoCom

Some teams had a few challenges with completing their solutions, and described what they were going after. At the presentation stage, judges are curious about the rationale for a particular implementation and ask questions in that vein.

These were the categories the judges used to evaluate projects:

Uniqueness - Unique, useful idea; locally appropriate application or problem-solving approach

Use of Technologies - The use of the technologies selected is ground-breaking, appropriate and novel

Feasibility - Solution is technically AND economically feasible. Has a low cost-benefit. Low effort for delivery.

Theme - Solution delivers strongly on the theme. Solution has a well-defined scope.

Presentation - Clear and concise explanation of the team’s solution, reasoning and aim. Team collaboration and cohesiveness is present. Presenter engaged audience.

Now that the Presentation Stage is behind us, use the TCJ Portal to submit your projects by October 8. Do reach out to the TCJ Build Team via email (codejam at teleios dash systems dot com), Facebook or Twitter if you have any challenges with your solutions. As a reminder, the Presentation Stage accounts for 30% of your final TCJ score. However, the solutions submitted by teams will account for 50% of the overall tally.

Up next: TCJ Challenge Week!
