The DriveWorks Challenge 2

Join the DriveWorks Challenge

Following the success of the first DriveWorks challenge, Paul Gimbel, DriveWorks Sherpa has announced the next DriveWorks Challenge brief!

If youre new to the challenge, find out more about how you can get involved below.

The idea is simple, we provide you with a brief and a starter project, and all you need to do is complete the project to meet the requirements in the brief. The challenge is designed to be relatively quick (we certainly dont want to make more work for you!) and to help you explore new ways of thinking and working within DriveWorks.

The goal of The DriveWorks Challenge is to provide you with a quick, fun puzzle that can help you shift mental gears and change the way that you look at DriveWorks and at your own implementation.

We will give you plenty of time (think calendar, not timer) to complete the challenge and you can put as much or as little effort into it as you see appropriate.

At the end of the challenge, we will post a video and DriveWorks Package (.drivepkg) in the DriveWorks Learning Portal showing how we solved the challenge, along with some of our favorite submissions. We’ll also be announcing the winners at DriveWorks Drivers on September 14th.

What is the Challenge Brief?

For this DriveWorks Challenge, we want you to create the most user hostile form you can we want to see your most creative, hardest to use solutions!

We know how hard it can be to always follow the best practice, so this project is all about breaking the rules. The aim of this challenge is to get you thinking about what not to do as this can be really valuable in recognizing how to improve the user interface of your DriveWorks implementation.

The winners will be revealed by Paul Gimbel, DriveWorks Sherpa, in our next DriveWorks Drivers meeting on Thursday 14th of September.

Get your submissions in before Friday 8th of September to be entered into the prize draw!

Who Can Take the Challenge?

The DriveWorks Challenge is open to, and achievable by all DriveWorks skill levels. No engineering, IT or SOLIDWORKS knowledge required.

Take as much or as little time as you like (average time is around 30 minutes).

The deadline for submissions for prizes is Friday, 8th September.
You can of course submit after this time but your submission will not be entered into the prize draw.
