Following the successful first Italian Internet of Things Day held on the 9th of April 2013 (links) CREATE-NET is co-organising an IoT Hackathon as part of Hack Reality 2, a thematic event taking place between Milan and Trento on the 25th of May 2013.
Hack Reality event this year is more special since for the first time it will be simultaneously run across two different locations (Milano and Trento), utilising the power of the Internet of Things. You are invited to play with sensors, devices and develop applications in Trento that will receive information and/or control devices in Milano!
We provide you with:
- The hardware: Flyport WiFi embedded development platforms for making devices communicate over the Internet, Plug-n-play Grove sensors, Plug-n-play Grove actuators, cables, power, etc.
- The software: An IDE and libraries for developing your embedded code and a Cloud-back end for visualizing your sensor data and controlling devices remotely
- Help to program Flyport boards*
- The Internet
- And food for your brain (and body)
You bring your creativity and your imagination! (you will need your laptop too) Bring any friends too (human or hardware ones)!
Great prizes for the winning teams include 750€, 500€ and 320€ Amazon gift cards!
*You don't have to be an expert in web/mobile and embedded development to join! Not only developers and designers have good ideas! In the melting pot of a hackathon you will find other participants who can help either technically or with their creativity. It is up to you to make up / become part of a team that includes the largest variety of skills. After all, this is part of the game!
You need to have registered in order to participate in the Hackathon. Each participant needs to make a separate registration (even if you plan to work as a team). Registration on this website is for Trento participants only! If you are in Milano please check here.
