So you missed out on participating in {OpenBracket’s first round? It’s OK, you can still compete this weekend in the high-stakes coding competition even if you didn’t get a formal invitation.

But you need to do a little bit of homework first: This portal has an assessment you need to complete, you’ll have 48 hours to complete those five questions. After you complete the assessment, you need to use the same email address to request a ticket, but only if you make the cut.

If you missed the news, {OpenBracket is investing $50,000 into the Delaware tech economy. There’s $15,000 on the line for the talented contestant who places first.

This national competition is produced by us here at Technical.ly Delaware, along with HackerRank and a great number of financial community partners like Chatham Financial. It was spearheaded by venture capitalist and tech advocate Ben duPont with collaboration from Zach Phillips of The Kitchen, Tariq Hook of Zip Code Wilmington, economic development nonprofit First State Innovation and consultant Kirsten Wolfington. The event is backed by supporters such as JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, Christiana Care Health System, Capital One, M&T Bank and WSFS Bank.

More details are still in the works in regards to entertainment scheduling but we’ll update you as soon as we find out.
