Less than 24 hours left until Tremend’s Ultimate Hackathon Challenge is ON. April 9 will be nothing short of a legendary day here, and one of the reasons is the cool theme we picked for this year’s internal competition: Internet of Things apps and products. We’re planning on bringing innovation, trying new stuff, testing our skills, learning interesting things, and having fun together.
24 hours of coding
Our colleagues have already prepared their epic ideas for the challenge. Seven mixed teams, with engineers from all of our divisions (enterprise, mobile, web and embedded), are eager and determined to make them happen in no more than 24 hours of coding, spiced up with adrenaline rush, action, fun time, and lots of pizza, burgers, insomnia cookies, Red Bull and cold beer on the house.
Internet of Things
We’ll have some cool toys to play with, including:
- Amazon Echo, known as Alexa, or Echo – a smart wireless speaker that you can control using just your voice
- Philips Hue Starter Kit – a gadget that is revolutionizing the way we use the lights in our homes
- Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit – a very interesting device for securing and monitoring the house
The bets are ON
<Hacking Begins> at 10:30 in the morning. If you want to see what our Tremend-ous colleagues have prepared for this Ultimate Hackathon Challenge, follow us on Facebook this Saturday, cheer the teams and stay updated with the evolution of their projects.
As for us, we can’t wait to see their plans happen! Because, as Alex Kern, the famous hacker, once said, Hackathons are where your crazy idea becomes reality.
