Developer Challenge

Figure out this challenge to get a promo code for a free ticket! Your challenge is to read in a string of Braille characters (using standard English Braille defined here) and print off the word in standard English letters.

The input will consistent of an array of 2x6 space-delimited Braille characters. This array is always on the same line, so regardless of how long the text is, it will always be on 3-rows of text. A lowered bump is a dot character '.', while a raised bump is an upper-case 'O' character.

Ex: This Input translates to helloworld

O. O. O. O. O. .O O. O. O. OO 
OO .O O. O. .O OO .O OO O. .O
.. .. O. O. O. .O O. O. O. ..

Print the transcribed braille below to get the promo code!

.O O. .O OO O. O. .O OO O. OO O. .O O. .O
O. .O O. .. .. OO OO .. .. .. OO OO .O OO
O. O. O. O. .. O. O. O. OO .. .. .O O. .O


What should I build?

Let your gut guide you! We usually like to see projects that are innovative, and have the potential to improve or influence people’s lives. Try to build a hack that people can use, enjoy, and potentially scale. Most importantly, have fun with it and try to finish in time. We know you can only do so much in 24 hours, so it’s ok if your project is not perfect (yet).

Who can attend?

Anyone and everyone! Our attendees typically consist of junior developers looking to improve their skills, senior developers looking to expand their horizons, designers of all skill-sets, and serious entrepreneurs that can add value to teams.

How is the hackathon judged?

We're doing things a little different this time. We’re saying goodbye to the Powerpoint days, and working solely with DEMO’S. No exceptions. To win an AngelHack hackathon, you will have to demo your product for at least 30 seconds. But don’t worry if your project is not 100% perfect for the demo. We know you can only do so much in 32 hours, so it’s ok if your demo is not perfect (yet). Projects will be judged based on:

See you there!
