Are you a hacker? Then plan to join Hacker Day at EclipseCon 2022. Play with IoT devices… work on servers… test the interoperability of your products... share (and build!) your ideas… whatever appeals to you!
The communal Hacker Day space (Bürgersaal 2) will have tables with power and wired Ethernet, plus tools for brainstorming, sharing ideas, testing devices, and honing your strategy.
EclipseCon sessions end at noon on Thursday. After lunch, Hacker Day officially opens, and the fun and friendly rivalry starts. Be ready to showcase your work!

Hacker Day Activities
Eclipse IoT Working Group Architecture Project
The Eclipse IoT crew will deploy about 50 micro:bit microcontrollers over the floor of the conference to form a Bluetooth Mesh. Back-end IoT services will also be available. The aim of this activity is to build a fun game involving constrained devices, IoT platforms, and a mobile application. Participate and solve the challenges proposed by the organizers, or just take advantage of the infrastructure to build an awesome project of your own. See this presentation for more details.
We invite fellow developers to have a hands-on experience with our SmartCLIDE IDE! SmartCLIDE is a cloud-native development environment based on Eclipse Theia that supports developers of cloud services in the discovery, creation, composition, testing, and deployment of full-stack data-centered services and applications in the cloud. In the Hackathon, we will introduce SmartCLIDE, demonstrate its key functionalities, and present a series of programming challenges. We believe that the most effective way to experience a programming tool is to actually use it to build something interesting and useful. Join us, and let's build cool stuff together!
Software Defined Vehicle Hack Challenge
The Software Defined Vehicle hack challenge will provide excellent opportunities for developers interested in diving into the first working group projects and have direct hands-on experience in trying out and testing the possibilities of accelerating innovation for automotive grade in-car software stacks. For more, see the planning wiki page.
