Internet of Things World Hackathon
Why Attend This Hackathon?
The IoT World Hackathon is a not for profit event that creates on-the-spot teams of technologists and industry stakeholders to shape the next generation of the connected internet. The Hackathon provides a playful, exploratory environment where disruption and creative ideas are the essential tools for innovation.
The Hackathon will give developers, designers, and entrepreneurs the chance to pitch app and product ideas – form teams – build prototypes- and present to our Hackathon judges for a chance to be one of the top Hackathon winners who get Prizes, Publicity and Connections through the platform of Internet of Things World and IoT World News.
The Hack is a fantastic way to gain early access to developer platforms, hone and advance your skills, meet other hackers and connections, all in the environment of a unique conference bringing together some of the leading IoT experts from around the world.
Collocated with Internet of Things World, the Hack and the conference have a degree of integration to allow each group to benefit from the others presence – for Hackers to gain from exposure to the industry experts that will be present, and for conference goers to be inspired by the innovation and excitement of the Hack. Some of our keynotes and industry guru speakers will be acting as judges for the Hack, and other product gurus from the industry sectors addressed by the conference will be on hand to act as mentors.
Best Consumer IoT Project:
Application sectors for the consumer might include Home, Fitness & Health, Car, or use of Beacons. So applications you might consider might be things like turning on the coffee maker when you run the shower in the morning, turning on your car’s engine when you open the garage door, or guiding around a shopping mall.
Best IoT in the Environment Project:
Application sectors for this challenge could include Smart Cities, Intelligent Agriculture, Logistics or the Industry Internet. So the sort of applications you might like to build include trash cans that know when they need to be emptied, street lights that turn off when no-one is around, plants that know when they need watering, or industrial machines that let you know when their bearings might be wearing out.
We expect to add more challenges as further sponsors come on board, so be sure to check back for further information.
