Ulster Bank together with the Open Bank Project invites you to the 9th edition of Hack (Make!) The Bank which will be held from February 13th to 15th at The Mac in Belfast.
Hack (Make!) the Bank is a global series of Fin Tech Hackathons which are dedicated to realising tomorrow’s banking and financial solutions. This hackathon will bring together programmers, designers and members of the financial services industry to debate, design, code and pitch ideas on themes related to the challenges set below.
Developers won’t have access to real customer data but will instead use the Open Bank Project API ‘sandbox’ to simulate access to customer data and banking services as well as other API’s and data sets.
Have read through the T&C’s and they’re being sensible about IP etc. Some cool prizes on offer from Parrot AR 2 drones, Go-Pro Hero cameras, Beat headsets, to some tickets to the 6 Nations.
Hopefully this is a sign of UB engaging with the tech community on a more practical level.
