We’re a proud partner of kood/Jõhvi and had the best hackathon workshop to support them and their students:

The workshop had 21 participants working in teams of 5. Each team had a mentor from our side supporting them. They were Stefan, Kalle, Tanel Laud, Tarmo Tali (who came up with the workshop’s idea), Stanslilav Mõskovski, Tormi Mustkikas. Kalle gave an intro speech with slides.

There were snacks and drinks, lunch, and pizzas for the networking event after the workshop. Our mentors didn’t want to leave, as they had such thought-provoking conversations and world-changing ideas 🦄

Workshop topic: ‘Subscription Spending Insights: Leveraging Open Banking APIs’

This was the brief for this hackathon workshop: Let’s use Open Banking APIs to detect subscription spending.

The APIs provide a secure way to access transaction data from a user’s bank account. By identifying transactions that occur at regular intervals, subscription payments can be detected and analyzed to provide insights into a user’s spending habits. The information can help users better manage their subscriptions.

We used Nordigen as the AISP and provided anonymized data in case no suitable bank statement providers were available.

Once this briefing was done, each team got together to come up with the best solution.

After pitching their ideas, our mentors chose the winners
