  • 1.  BPW 24H Challenges - Registration opens on April 20th!

    Posted 04-13-2021 12:54

    Hi everyone,

    Today we wanted to share with you some exciting news!

    On the 20th of May at Blue Prism World, we will be hosting three 24H Challenges for global teams to work together and design the best process possible using Blue Prism.

    What are the 24H Challenges?

    The 24H Challenges are designed for global teams to virtually get together in a mini-hackathon style competition.

    During these challenges your team will have access to the Blue Prism environment for 24 hours to solve the challenge. However, different completion times (from 3 to 8 hours) are estimated based on the challenge difficulty and skills level.

    Once our Blue Prism judging panel evaluates the solutions submitted, they will select a winning team per challenge. All members from the winning team will be awarded a prize!

    Can I participate?

    The three Challenges will have a maximum capacity of 50 people per challenge. A minimum of three people are needed to enter a team (maximum five people per team). The challenges are open to both our customers and partners, although, entries are limited and acceptance will be on a first come first served basis - priority will be given to bigger teams.

    Last year the Challenges were extremely
    popular and registration had to be closed early as all spots were filled, so save the date and start organising your team before registration kicks off on the 20th of April. 

    All team entries must:

    • All team members must be available to participate on the 20th of May.
    • All team members must be registered for Blue Prism World.
    • All teams must have a minimum of three people and a maximum of five.
    • Be from the same organisation, i.e. they must all have the same email domain address (note – we will accept non-permanent employees or consultants provided they are under contract at your organisation).

    What are the next steps?


    If you haven't yet, register now for BPW.

    The Challenges registration will open next Tuesday, 20th of April. 

    Keep an eye on this thread, since we will be giving you more information throughout this week about the Challenges and the link to Challenge registration will be posted here. To keep up to date, you can follow this thread by clicking the "Follow" button at the top right (you must be logged in).

    Feel free to post any questions and hope to see you participating in the upcoming BPW Challenges!

    Hi Community!

    Throughout this week we will give you a bit more information about each three of the 24H Challenges taking place on the 20th of May at Blue Prism World.

    Today, we would like to present to you the Challenge "Translate news around the world", designed by @Alfred Lau - Product Consultant at Blue Prism. 

    For this Challenge, your team will have 24 hours to create a solution within the Blue Prism product to extract the editorial of the day from a website provided in French and translate into English.

    You would need to extract the article text without any advertisements and translate using Google Translate and Microsoft Bing. Once translation is completed, it is required to display and store the differences in the two translated texts.

    Depending on skill level, it is expected that this Challenge could be completed in 3 hours.

    Sounds interesting? Would you like to participate in this Challenge with your team?
    Let us know in the comments if you would have any initial questions around the "Translate news around the world" Challenge.

    Don't forget the registration kicks off very soon, on the 20th of April.  Save the date and start organising your team now 😊

    Hi Community!

    As promised, we will be giving you some exciting information throughout this week about each three of the 24H Challenges taking place on the 20th of May at Blue Prism World.

    Today, we would like to present to you the second Challenge "Robo-pairs! A memory game", designed by @Michael Lowe - Senior Product Consultant.

    For this Challenge, your team will have 24 hours to create a solution within the Blue Prism product to play the “Blue Prism – Matching Pairs Challenge” game using surface automation techniques only.

    The game has several levels, each with a varying number of cards on the screen and a 60 second time limit for each level. The aim of the challenge is to create a solution to complete the “Medium (5x4)” level in the fastest time, and in the fewest possible moves.

    Depending on skill level, it is expected that this Challenge could be completed in 6-8 hours.

    Does this Challenge resonate with you and your team? Would you like to apply for this one?

    Let us know in the comments if you would have any initial questions around the "Robo-pairs! A memory game" Challenge.

    Hi Community,

    Only one day to go until registration for the Challenges opens tomorrow, 20th of April.

    Do you still need some incentive to register your team? Today we would like to share with you some words coming from @Adrian Ogloza - participant and former winner of the last 24h Challenge, Automation Reviewer held in November 2020.

    Adrian's words about participating in a 24H Challenge: 
    "I have only good memories, when it comes to first 24H challenge.

    Generally speaking challenge – as the name suggests – should be challenging and this one was, indeed.

    Together with my team I spent a lot of hours on discussing how we have to approach.

    I also remember day, when final results were presented. We won! We were happy, but our victory was well-deserved 😉"


    He also shared with us a picture of the goodies included in the prize. You and your team could get the very same if you finally become winners!


    Start teaming up now and get ready to register your interest to participate in a 24H Challenge as a team from tomorrow! We will be sharing the registration link with you here once live.
