Thursday, January 30, 2020
Supplied by Administrator from entelect2013
We’ve finally reached a post-waterfall world, where iterative problem-solving processes have all but eclipsed traditional models. Almost every tech business, IT department and start-up will tell you they are "wall-to-wall" agile, and have embraced Scrum, Kanban or one of the numerous scaled delivery frameworks. Even so, non-delivery is still common because we've not yet learned to consistently build and drive cross-functional teams. ...

Entelect Challenge

One of the many amazing initiatives run by Entelect is the Entelect Challenge. For a number of years now, the Entelect Challenge has been South Africa’s premier coding competition. The idea was started by our staff who wanted to drive community engagement through a little competition. Little did we know that this challenge would become so huge. Years later, it is a national event with a total prize value over R200k, and still going strong.


The objective of the Entelect Challenge is for entrants to compete against each other by writing an AI program that can creatively and strategically outsmart and out-survive their opponents.


Back at the ranch, a team of Entelect employees run the whole show; developing the creative idea, launching it to the public, developing the player portal and forums, running the play-offs and hosting the final event at rAge. We’re always looking for new contributions and new ideas, so get involved!



We host our own conference called DevDay which is organised, presented and attended by our people. DevDay is a fun day out of the office where the technologist, inventor, hobbyist, engineer or artist in you can come to the fore. The event is part showcase, part science show, part geek club, part makers club; offering a range of lightning talks on cutting-edge technologies as well as a variety of interactive exhibition stands where people can discover the latest creative innovations in technology.
