EDC Hackathon

First Predix 2.0 Hackathon in Poland!

Join the first hackathon in Poland, connected with the Predix 2.0 – GE IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) cloud platform – organized on October 13th, 2017 during the 8th Night at the Institute of Aviation. No prior Predix 2.0 themed event of this type has taken place in Poland before.

What is a Hackathon?

It’s a team event for individuals, in which several teams comprised of software and hardware developers are given a specific challenge to be solved from scratch, with technology available at hand. Hackathon only takes 24 hours from start to completion. Usually it demands a lot of coffee, pizza, and soft drinks.

What is the EDC Industrial IoT Hackathon?

Our challenge is related to the aviation industry and is based on Predix software platform. The goal is to design and configure hardware, and implement a software solution which will combine multiple different modules and frameworks, covering full data flow from sensors through local Predix platform to the cloud. This would involve creating local and cloud implementation which would allow ingestion of industrial data to the cloud, and also visualization of ingested data in a web-based application.

Why will this one be unique?

At first because of the technology platform we will use – the cutting edge GE Predix 2.0 IIoT technology. Secondly, thanks to our partnership with General Electric there will be access to REAL LIFE industrial data! What’s more, cross-functional teams will take part in the competition – from Embedded Programming, through Data Science up to User Experience (on Polymer)!

Who are we looking for?

The EDC Industrial IoT Hackathon is aimed at people fascinated in new technologies focusing on IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). We are looking for people who like solving problems and working in a team.
