“Hot-or-Not 2017” is organized annually by Sioux with the aim of helping software engineers to keep up-to-date with the latest and “hottest” trends as well as knowledge to improve ways of working. Participants will decide whether the topic is “Hot” or “Not” in the end.

On April 15th, at Duy Tan University (03 Quang Trung), over 250 software engineers from many software companies in Da Nang city participated the event "Hot or Not 2017 ".  This event was really hot with many games and activities such as: HoloLens, photo booth, Challenge Game,…
