CodeWarrior is an online national level Developer Challenge on Innovation conducted by Intuit India in Bangalore. In CodeWarrior, contestants need to showcase their creative skills by developing innovative SMS based mobile apps using the services of Txtweb, the biggest SMS based platform in India created by Intuit.
Few top applications were selected for the final round. They were required to present their application in front of a panel which comprised all business heads of Intuit India.
Finalists and winners for Judges’ Choice Award were then selected by a panel of experts comprising 3-5 industry members. All apps were judged on the following criteria:
App implementation quality: The overall architecture of the application and the elegance/modularity of the code.
User experience: The overall positive quotient of the user’s interaction with the app.
