IoT Hackathon Friday – Saturday (12 hours!)

For the hackers (and you know who you are!), we are having a special 12-hour IoT Hackathon from 9PM Friday March 31 to 9AM Saturday April 1 (no fooling!), which will teach you more than you ever wanted to know about building a device for the IoT with security features, and on a FREE IBM BlueMix Watson IoT account!  Over twenty teams of student branches as well as a number of engineers, makers, and hobbyists will complete IoT challenges with security implications on the ESP 8266 NodeMCU board. During this twelve hour hackathon you will learn to interface various input and output devices to your board (yes, you will be building hardware in our software contest! NO SOLDERING!) There will also be a series of briefings during the hackathon that will cover how to best utilize this powerful microcontroller to create an amazing IoT “product”. You will be given a number of programming (and some wiring) challenges for points. And, you will learn a lot about cybersecurity and cloud computing and connectivity!

Programming will be done in arduino (C++). Some challenges may involve programming your laptop, so have some compiler / interpreter installed (language of your choice).

All teams will be working with IBM BlueMix Watson IoT, compliments of IBM!

A great time will be had by all! BRING YOUR OWN COMPUTER (we are recommending at least one be Win7-10) – we will supply all the parts/sensors and software!

This hackathon is the Software Contest for IEEE SoutheastCon 2017. Participation is free to the primary team from any Region 3 participating school (ALL TEAM MEMBERS MUST BE REGISTERED FOR SOUTHEASTCON 2017!). Additional teams from schools and ANYONE from the general public can attend and participate in the OPEN category for a $99 parts fee.

LIMIT OF 25 STUDENT TEAMS AND 25 OPEN TEAMS. TEAMS CAN CONSIST OF 1-3 INDIVIDUALS.
