Edgeworx is organizing a mini-hackathon! At this event, which is oriented toward developers, teams will be challenged to integrate at least one other Eclipse IoT project with Eclipse ioFog and showcase what they were able to accomplish. Representatives from all Eclipse projects are welcome to come help guide, coach, and influence participants to make use of their projects; we want to include as many projects as possible. There will be prizes for the standouts, plus giveaways (and fun) for all!
The event is part of Community Night on Tuesday, October 22, from 19:30 - 22:00 in the Theater Stage room at the Forum.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive with their teams already formed and all members present. Those who are not yet part of a team when the mini-hackathon starts will have the option to either form a team with others, join an existing team, or form a team by themselves.
The mini-hackathon will continue informally on Wednesday for those who want to go further, or finish what they started on Tuesday night. Look for a marked table in the Power-Up Lounge (lower Bürgersaal Foyer).
Software developers of all languages and skill levels. Familiarity with Docker and containerization is an advantage but is not strictly necessary.
Our aim is to empower developers to move their existing skills into the edge computing space quickly, and to showcase the incredible value of leveraging multiple Eclipse IoT projects together in the same solution... and to have fun!
Minimum required equipment
Linux, Windows, or Mac laptop.
A Raspberry Pi 3 or Raspberry Pi 4 board, Raspberry Pi Zero board, Nvidia Jetson Nano or other Nvidia Jetson board, or any other device capable of edge computing. Some edge boards may be available on loan for developers who do not bring their own, but this will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we can't promise availability.
Teams will spend a few hours building solutions from Eclipse IoT projects that can be demonstrated at the close of the mini-hackathon. Given the short timeframe, we will provide many pre-integrated components.
We will kick off with a brief introduction by Kilton Hopkins from Edgeworx and the Eclipse ioFog project. Representatives from several Eclipse IoT projects will be on hand to help guide participant teams toward success with their mini-hackathon projects; they will be introduced at the start of the event so participants know who to ask for help. We will explain the judging criteria and other logistical information, and then the teams will start on their solutions. When time is up, teams will present their achievements to the audience, the judges will evaluate, and the three winners announced.
