Hackathon meets SCOM for the ultimate clash of the titans

16 & 17 November 2021

HackaSCOM 2021 combines a conventional hackathon with SCOM to bring together some of the greatest SCOM experts in a head-to-head 24-hour challenge.

Day 1 – Ready, Set, Code

During this webinar, the SCOM community vote on the final monitoring mission we set our experts. Our experts then share their initial thoughts on their challenge and we start the timer! Giving our pros a mere 24-hours to complete their build.

Day 2 – The Results

In this webinar, our experts were center-stage to showcase their work live to our panel of judges, who then critiqued their approach and nominated a winner. This is a great opportunity to get first-hand MP authoring tips and tricks and see how our pros built their custom MPs.
