Georgetown, Guyana – Members of TGR2018 (travelling and home) participated in Hack-Solve 2019. The event saw more than 30 technical and non-technical persons such as Developers, Marketers, Designers and even individuals with amazing ideas come together to solve a chosen problem faced by most if not all individuals in Guyana. The problem this year was to fix the issue on the dissemination of Information. The solutions towards this problem was to create and intelligent bot called IRIS- Intelligent Reporting Information System.
Team member Michael Sampson said, “This was my first Hack-Solve and I can say without a doubt the experience there was truly amazing, being able to be among some brilliant minds, sharing ideas and being able to code alongside those individuals was truly an amazing experience. The atmosphere was just incredible, there was laughter, coding and a lot of fun and in the end we had an amazing prototype of IRIS ready in less than 3 days. I would definitely encourage anyone who loves Technology to sign up for the next Hack-Solve. They won’t regret it.”
