Event description

Description

Are you creative, imaginative and curious about the connected world? If so, join us at the Digital Jersey Hub for a weekend of creating, making and pitching at our first Internet of Things creative marathon!

Participants are invited to bring their open minds to put together IoT concepts and components with other IoT-curious people and our experienced team of mentors. The weekend of the 13th to 14th October is dedicated to exploring the Internet of Things to inspire and encourage experimentation with IoT technology and – most importantly – to learn and have fun.

Whether you are an electronics expert or an idea angel, demonstrate your innovative and creative potential and you could lead the world with your next big idea.

Keep an eye on @DigitalJersey and digital.je for hints about what we have planned for your IoT delight!

Info on the data we will have available for the hackathon can be found here.
*NEW* we will also have exclusive data available from States of Jersey Police on road traffic incidents available.
