Tech-X Hackathon #6


We are thrilled to announce the prizes for our upcoming hackathon!

*Prizes are per team; therefore, they will be divided equally by the winning team members.

1st prize 3000 Euros

2nd prize 2000 Euros

3rd prize 1000 Euros

Hackathon #6 will be collocated with the Tech-X Conference, a new and broader event which aims to improve the knowledge of the technologies on which Gaia-X is built. We are aiming for an on-site event, with the resources made available afterwards.

The aim is to continue to work towards the implementation of a real-life end-to-end scenario which leverages the Gaia-X Open-Source Software and the Trust Framework. Projects which cover as much as possible from the steps below will be prioritised.

  1. Set the context, the real-life use and why a federation is needed/preferred
  2. Show how the federation is built/used
    a. How cross-organisation identity and management access is implemented using Gaia-X Compliant participant self-description
    b. How offerings are added in a catalogue using Gaia-X Compliant service self-description
    c. How offers for Gaia-X Compliant services can be queried in a catalogue
    d. How catalogues synchronise themselves
  3. Show how data exchange can be done by enforcing the access control described in the Gaia-X Compliant self-descriptions
