XPRT Women Code-a-Thon: Shaping the future of technology

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwired - January 21, 2016) - The BenchmarkXPRT Development Community and ChickTech are co-hosting the XPRT Women Code-a-Thon on March 12-13 in Seattle. The code-a-thon encourages Seattle software programmers to team up to create workloads for the BenchmarkXPRT tools that reflect the evolving use of technology in everyday life.

The BenchmarkXPRT tools, or XPRTs, are apps that empower people all over the world to test how well devices handle everyday activities. The XPRTs do this by running workloads that simulate common tasks. Because the goal of the XPRTs is to reflect real-world technology usage, it's important that these workloads represent a wide range of viewpoints and ways of using devices. This code-a-thon enables people beyond the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community to add their voices and perspectives to the tools.

The top three teams will receive cash prizes, and the XPRT development team will consider all participants' workloads for inclusion in future versions of the XPRTs.
