Guidewire DEVHack 2024

The competition has concluded. Congratulations to this year's winners!

What is Guidewire DEVHack?

Guidewire DEVHack 2024 is a virtual hackathon, sponsored by AWS, that allows the largest network of developers in the P&C industry to demonstrate their skills, passion, and experience to solve real-world industry problems.

What was at stake? Cash prizes for first, second, and third place, as well as the chance for the first place winner to be showcased in the Demo Theater at Guidewire Connections, attended by 3,000 top industry executives, investors, and press!

During the initial application phase, we received more than 130 team applications, from which 25 teams were selected to compete in the hackathon.

From March 8 – April 1, 2024 the teams competed by building their proposed solution with access to a dev environment provisioned with InsuranceSuite utilizing the Innsbruck ski release of Guidewire Cloud Platform. Once solutions were submitted, complete with a video demo and written report, a panel of six judges reviewed and scored each submission, selecting five finalists to be announced on April 24, 2024 at the Guidewire DEVSummit in Bengaluru, India.
