Do you love to hack? Are you up for a big challenge?
This hackathon is driven by EDP powered by Microsoft. This initiative aims at developing innovation scenarios which can promote new business projects, focused in Internet of Things (IoT), specifically around fresh technological approaches with Smart Meters. Rethink traditional business models in the energy sector.
Leveraging both the open source scene and commercial solutions, teams should aim at building an end to end solution, for EDP's residential customers to use at home. All projects must structure their approach to be easy to install, easy and with practical use while keeping a low effort maintenance. All this characteristics should promote a strong adoption by end-users.
Participants should always start with cloud and data analytics on top of their minds. A selected jury from EDP and Microsoft will evaluate the pitch, solution capabilities and applicability both from technical and business prespective.
The EDP IoT Hackathon will comply wit a set of rules and regulation. For a better understanding, we've compiled it in a document. Take a look:
