Prembly Announces Its first in a series of Hackathons: Exploring Endless Possibilities with The Power of APIs


Identitypass by Prembly hosted its maiden edition hackathon in 2021. This year, we decided to take it further by hosting a hybrid hackathon event with over 500 participants from across the continent.

This year’s Hackathon by Prembly will be a seven-day hackathon dedicated to new and innovative developers across Africa. We are thrilled to invite all hackers and builders to participate. It will be the perfect opportunity for aspiring developers and tech enthusiasts to learn about the tools, resources, and information involved in building with the power of APIs by utilizing Prembly’s and other partners’ API resources.

Hackathon 2022: Exploring Endless Possibilities with the Power of APIs

The Prembly Hackathon 2022 will be a hybrid competition that will begin online in November 2022, with a world-class team of mentors from our partnered companies and communities.

The event will be categorized into two sections: Virtual and Onsite. For the onsite event, participants will be required to form diverse teams and create products using Identitypass APIs and other APIs made available to hackers. The top 10 teams will be invited to present to a panel of judges on the Hackathon’s finale.

Throughout the seven days of hacking, our professional team will mentor and guide the teams, and our technology partners will also lend their professional assistance. All top-ten finishers will be invited, and rest assured that Prembly will arrange your transportation and accommodations.

The Hackathon concludes with a Pitch and award ceremony where the best teams pitch to a panel of Judges. The top three teams and winners in our over 20 categories will receive prizes worth millions of naira at the event’s climax.
