Tip from a Previous Winner

Did you know?!

Last year’s Microsoft Azure AI Hackathon had some amazing submissions. Roy Kincaid took home the Third Place Prize for his project Water Level Anomaly Detector, and wanted to share this helpful tip for this year’s participants:

Hackathons are usually based around a tool, feature, or service. Don't worry if the ideas on what to build are not flowing at first, just sign up and start tinkering. After reading the docs and building the samples, you'll have a better picture of how the tools work and, most importantly, what types of problems they were meant to solve in the first place. From here, start thinking about other topics that may have similar problems that these tools could help alleviate. The idea for your project will come in no time and you'll be better prepared to build the proof of concept.

Do you have a tip you’d like to share with your fellow devs?  Be sure to request access and share it in the Teams Channel, we know they’ll appreciate it!
