AngelPrime join forces with NASSCOM to Host Aadhaar Hackathon

AngelPrime, a seed-stage Venture Capital Fund based in Bangalore and NASSCOM, in collaboration with UIDAI, will host an online “Aadhaar Application Hackathon” from June 6-7, 2015. Developers are invited to participate in this online coding event which will look at building compelling applications that leverage the Aadhaar platform.

The aim of the Aadhaar hackathon is to encourage and promote the development of applications that utilize the open Aadhaar APIs. The online hackathon is open to participants across India and will require them to take an online entry test to ensure they meet minimum eligibility criterion.

The Hackathon is backed by some of the biggest names in the technology industry, led by AngelPrime as the title sponsor. The event is also supported by NASSCOM’s 10,000 start-ups, Khosla Labs and Morpho.

“The event will see qualified participants indulge in a non-stop 2 day coding marathon. Starting from June 6-7 2015, developers will build products under any of the following categories: Government Benefits, Financial Services (banking, insurance, and brokerage), Payments, Healthcare, FMCG, and Online + Offline (O2O),” stated the release.

Aadhaar APIs such as Biometric Authentication, Biometric eKYC, Demographic Authentication, OTP Authentication and OTP eKYC will be exposed to all developers. Both Biometric Authentication and Biometric eKYC require approved biometric sensors for which the participants are free to procure their own devices (UIDAI approved).

USB- based biometric sensors are being made available by Morpho with their SDK for Android and Windows at the cost of Rs.3000. Khosla Labs will be partnering with AngelPrime for the Hackathon by opening up the APIs of its product - Aadhaar Bridge to enable the participants to integrate these Aadhaar services on their apps. Aadhaar Bridge provides for a developer friendly API along with SDK that supports multiple UIDAI certified biometric devices.

Developers can choose to participate from the comfort of their homes or can walk into any of the offline venues that will be announced on May 20, 2015. The Aadhaar Hackathon will be administered via the HackerEarth Sprint, a unique tool developed by HackerEarth for conducting large-scale online hackathons. All applications will be required to prove the successful use of the Aadhaar APIs and will be judged automatically for quality of code and sophistication of the application.
