IBM Watson IoT Tower - Corporate Office
Coding for the Internet of Things…
This hackathon event, supported by Texas Instruments, UnternehmerTUM and Provinzial Rheinland will be your opportunity in conjunction with your teammates, coupled with a large dose of fun and imagination, to apply your innovation and development prowess to the exciting and rapidly evolving ‘Internet of Things’. For the teams who impress the most against the challenges set, there will be an opportunity for the ideas and solutions developed to be showcased in the Watson IoT Munich Center, on display and demonstrable to the myriad of clients and companies that visit the center each week. And if you’re willing to share more widely, the opportunity to turn your ideas into public ‘code journeys’ that will be accessible to developers on a global stage as exemplars of how to develop for the Internet of Things.
With IBM Bluemix and the Watson IoT Platform Services as the fundamental innovation platform for this event, our particular technology focus for the ‘things’ will be sub-GHz low-powered wide-area networks. And given the specific location of this event, we are of course most interested in the innovative application of this technology to use-cases spanning the Industrial and Insurance sectors… and any combinations therein!
We have plenty of room for twenty teams of 4 or 5 individuals so there will be lots of scope for sharing ideas and experiences, making new friends and expanding your own personal network of ‘great people to know and follow’.
