What motivated you to learn how to use Pega?
A friend recommended the Pega UAP program to me since it helps teach students how to create business applications without having to use a lot of complex coding. I was really intrigued by Pega after going through a few classes and I’m now at the point where I have attained certification as a CSSA on the Pega platform.

 

"Pega makes building applications both easy and interesting! The career opportunities are excellent and Pega can help you achieve your career objectives if you are passionate about learning and mastering the platform."

 

How has Pega shaped or impacted your career?
Being able to win a Pega Community Hackathon award as a student with a non-Computer Science background is really a dream come true so I’m very thankful to have been a part of the Feed The Need team.

What message or advice would you give to anyone who is considering a career as a Pega Developer?
Pega makes building applications both easy and interesting! The career opportunities are excellent and Pega can help you achieve your career objectives if you are passionate about learning and mastering the platform.

"Feed The Need was created to help people who have been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. After analyzing the basic needs of human beings. We came together and used Pega to automate requests for these services. "

 

How did you find out about the Pega Community Hackathon and why did you want to participate?
I heard about the Pega Community Hackathon from my friend at my university. The reason I decided to participate in this hackathon is that I was interested in designing a new solution to help solve existing social problems. Working on the Feed The Need team allowed me to work on a team that was looking to make a positive impact on society in this pandemic situation via the creation of a Pega application.

Tell us about the Hackathon project that you worked on - How did you or your team come up with the idea? How did you or your team go about the process of building this Hackathon submission?
We as a team were looking to provide a solution for people who are at risk of losing their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic. That’s why we decided to build a Pega application that acts as a bridge between donor and the recipient and provides needful resources at the right time.

After analyzing the pros/cons of existing solutions in the real world, we built out an automated process for requesting help by using the Pega platform. Our application provides six extraordinary services through which donors and recipients can share their resources.

Are there any particular elements of this Hackathon submission that you are most proud of?
That we were able to win a Hackathon prize in spite of the many challenges that we faced in creating this application.

"Working on Pega technology has created opportunities for me to deliver real-world results quickly resulting in internal exposure and experience."
