Global Open API Challenge for Developers to Consume, Ideate, Create, and Share
Aug 25 – Oct 06, 2021
Route Mobile API Developer Network, is an initiative to connect global API developers together to build a community. The program includes a global open API challenge, where the Developers will learn how to ideate, create, and share prototypes of our various APIs with the community. Developers will be at the heart of this transformation and technology will be the core enabler of this tectonic change.

The shortlisted teams will be invited to present it to the panel virtually, where the top three solutions will be judged and evaluated for cash prizes, as listed below.
No. You are not required to spend anything to participate in Route Mobile’s open API challenge.
If you enjoy coding, you are welcome to participate in the open API challenge.
You must build the application on your local system and submit it on the HackerEarth website in tar/zip format, along with instructions on how to execute it and the source code.
The entire concept does not have to be implemented; however, the submission must be functional in order for the judges to evaluate it.
No, you don’t have to be logged in to RAPID or be online the entire time. You can create the application on your own computer using the provided themes and then submit it to team RAPID via HackerEarth’s page.
There are no limitations/restrictions on the languages, technological stacks, or libraries that can be used. You can use any of them to build a web/mobile application.
You can submit a small presentation or video that demonstrates your submission if you like, but it is not mandatory and is simply useful to have. If you are chosen as one of the winners, you may be asked to present your application at a virtual event, the details of which will be communicated to you with prior notice.
Yes, it is absolutely fine to submit just the prototype. If you use any database like MySQL or PostgresSQL, you can also submit a database dump along with your submission. However, you are allowed to submit just the prototype.
Yes, all team members can use their team account to submit the application to team RAPID.
The developer(s) of the Route Mobile web/mobile application will have complete control over the product’s IP. However, all codes must be in the public domain (open source) in order for the judges to evaluate them.
A developer should avoid using a tablet or mobile device to interact with the RAPID platform. The optimal use of the website can be made on a desktop or a laptop.
