Tips

Before the event

  • Form your team, choose your challenge and talk about potential solutions. Assign roles and responsibilities within your team based on each member’s skills and interests. Consider what other teams might build and whether your solution will stand out.

During the event

  • Remember, there is limited time to build your solution, so wasted moments may affect your outcome. So be honest and critical.That way, you’ll have time to course correct, if necessary.
  • Seek advice from the Mylan coaches – they are there to help!
  • Take a mental break. We have tons of fun activities planned throughout the event to help your mind unwind!

Presentations

  • When time is up, be ready. You’ll have only 5 minutes to present your solution. The cutoff time will be strictly enforced. Wow us and your team could be the  winner!
  • Teams will draw numbers out of hat to determine presentation order.
  • Determine presentation roles in advance - e.g: who will run the presentation, who will speak. A weekend's worth will boil down to quality of the idea and the ability to present it with confidence or conviction to the jury.
  • Designate one laptop as the presentation machine. Test the material on it before you present. Make sure you can connect the laptop to our projector; we support VGA and HDMI.
  • Bring everything you need in order to be successful and seamlessly running the project.

Additional Logistics

  • Internet Wi-Fi access will be provided to all participants to research and build their solutions.
  • Access to Mylan's internal system's, software or servers will not be provided to any of the the participating teams. 

Things that will speed you along

  • Set realistic expectations - a bit of whiteboarding at the start.
  • A picture is worth a thousand words, so draw what you want to build. It’ll reduce the chance of slow communication or miscommunication.
  • Use a framework – bootstrap, jQuery, project templates.
  • Use github or something similar – share code and be able to roll back quickly, if needed.
  • Start from the UI – what will people see? – and work backwards.
  • Your solution should look decent – give it a name and logo. Brand it.
  • Your motto? IMPROVISE, ADAPT AND OVERCOME.
