Conversations are more than just an exchange of words, but are the essential fibers of meaningful human connections. We collaborate on projects, share content, attend conferences anywhere in the world, have virtual game nights, etc… all with a few simple clicks. These connections and experiences are made possible by innovators and builders, such as yourself.

Take this challenge as an opportunity to dream and bring to life new human connection experiences. Combine Agora’s rich interactive experience APIs with Symbl.ai’s conversation intelligence (AI that understands natural human conversations) to build a more enhanced and smarter conversation experience for any use case of your choice.

Examples may include enhancing accessibility experiences, building a virtual meeting assistant, enabling live captioning for streaming, analyzing sales conversations at scale, automating workflows from sprint meetings etc…the possibilities are only limited by your own imagination. Good luck and happy hacking.

Bridgecrew Challenge #1 - Build a secure cloud native application

1st Place: $200 gift card for a custom keyboard
Questions - Contact: taysmith@paloaltonetworks.com

It's one thing to build a cloud native application fast, but can you also make it secure? Tools like Bridgecrew can help. We provide automated feedback and guardrails to secure cloud native applications from code to cloud.

For this challenge, we’re looking for you to build a secure cloud native application that solves a real world challenge (eCommerce, banking, investment application, etc.). We’re looking to be impressed by the complexity of your application that stays within the bounds of security and compliance requirements. The application you build must be unique (no forking a repo and calling it a day) and secure. Security will be based on minimizing the number of medium to critical severity issues in your infrastructure as code and container images, based on a scan by the Bridgecrew platform.

Restrictions:
- Code must be frameworks supported by Bridgecrew
- Applications must have at least one IaC file, one Kubernetes manifest, and one Dockerfile

Entries will be judged on complexity (number and capability of microservices, cloud resources, and connections between them) and how well the application performs its business case. Each service or resource that has a medium or higher severity issue will not be included in the judging.

Happy Hacking!

Bridgecrew Challenge #2 - Secure a badly misconfigured IaC file (10)

10 challengers will receive a $10 Amazon.com giftcard

Questions - contact: taysmith@paloaltonetworks.com

Infrastructure as code security tools provides a scalable, codified way to build new infrastructure. Leveraging open source modules can help you build even faster. However, even if fully deployable, they are not always secure.

DevSecOps builds in security feedback and guardrails throughout the development process. Bridgecrew is one tool that can help you find and fix misconfigurations at scale. For this challenge, take our IaC security training tool - TerraGoat - and secure one provider. Take one provider (AWS, Azure, or GCP) and fix all of the misconfigurations higher than low severity to win!

How it works:
- Fork TerraGoat
- Pick a provider (AWS, Azure, or GCP)
- Scan it with Bridgecrew
- Fix all of the misconfigurations with a severity of Medium or higher
- Send the link over for review

Restrictions:
- No removing files or resource blocks

Judging will be performed by checking that all resource blocks are in place and then scanned by Bridgecrew for any Medium or higher misconfigurations

Webhookie AB Challenge - Demonstrate the power of event-driven webhook APIs with a use case of your choice (2)

1st Place: $2000
2nd Place: $1000
Questions - Contact:https://community.webhookie.com/

Data integration is fundamental to our connected world. Event-driven APIs have the power to automate
processes and connect businesses in a much faster and more agile way than traditional integration methods.

The challenge is to imagine any use case where event-driven webhook APIs can add value and to demonstrate it
with a working solution.

Examples are everywhere - any B2B process, sharing of real time updates to central data repositories, IoT events,
events through AI identification, nearly anywhere you can see event-driven API use cases.

We are looking for an end-to-end solution that is working and runable that demonstrates real-value with the addition of
webhook APIs using webhookie.
