Two USP students and three Computing students formed a team to compete in the API World Hackathon 2016 and won the grand prize of US$10,000 from SAP Hybris, one of the largest sponsors for the challenge!

They are:

Suphasak Udomkichdecha (BIZ + USP, Class of 2018)

Rafikah Binte Mohamed Halim (BIZ + USP, Class of 2018)

Mai Anh Vu (Computing, Class of 2018)

(All five are also NUS Overseas College (NOC) students.)

The API World Hackathon is the US largest API + Integration hackathon, organised annually in conjunction with the 3rd Annual API World 2016 Conference and Expo. This year’s event was held on 10-11 September 2016 at San Francisco, California. More than 70 teams participated in the challenge but only five teams were selected for the final round. During the final round, the NUS team had to make a 2-min pitch to the overall judges on stage, as well as on Facebook Live.

We congratulate Suphasak, Rafikah and their teammates for their big win!
