Are you a hacker? Then plan to join the Hackerspace on 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 Hackerspace will have tables with power and wired Ethernet, plus tools for brainstorming, sharing ideas, testing devices, and honing your winning strategy.
EclipseCon sessions end at noon on Thursday. After lunch, the Hackerspace officially opens, and the fun and friendly rivalry starts. A panel of judges will choose the winners and award the prizes. (Yes, there will be prizes!) So be ready to showcase your work!
How to Join
Anyone registered for Hacker Day at EclipseCon is welcome. If you have a Three-Day Pass or an All-Access Pass, Hacker Day is included. You can also choose to register for a Hacker Day Only pass. (See the Registration page for details.)
A list of hacking opportunities will be added to this page and announced to the community soon. We will tell you how you can join each of them, either ahead of time or after you arrive at the conference. Here is the current list.
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.
Eclipse Sparkplug Working Group Plugfest
If you have a device or software platform implementing the MQTT Sparkplug protocol, this event is for you! Come, deploy your stuff, and see the out-of-the-box interoperability of Sparkplug at work! Once this is done, work with your peers to build an exciting showcase of your products!
