BENGALURU: The fifth edition of TechGig’s coding competition – Geek Goddess 2019 – this year will encourage participants to build solutions on development platforms such as Automation Anywhere and JetBrains.

The competition will be held in Bengaluru on November 8.

Geek Goddess 2019 will host six themes, based on technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), robotic process automation (RPA) and cloud.
