Toitware Mini Hackaton, October 27th

Home / 1: Events / Toitware Mini Hackaton, October 27th

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION. THEREFORE, IT IS CURRENTLY NOT POSSIBLE TO REGISTER. A NEW DATE WILL BE COMMUNICATED ONCE AVAILABLE. 

In this mini hackathon, we will develop ideas and program apps for the TOITbox. TOITbox is the physical part of Toitware’s new IoT platform: TOIT. It comes pre-installed with WiFi and NarrowBand IoT for communication and sensors to measure humidity, air pressure, temperature, etc. as well as a programmable user interface with a display and four LED buttons. All you have to do is come up with an idea for a use case for the TOITbox, or pick one of the challenges that will be presented to you on the day and then start programming apps for it! With the right idea, this platform has the potential to make an impact on real-world scenarios.

You will be presented with a couple of concrete challenges, but you are also welcome to come up with your own ideas for TOIT apps. You will get a solid introduction to the TOIT platform by Helena and Mark from the awesome Toitware team, who will be there to assist you during the course of the evening – the rest of the Toitware team will be ready to assist you remotely via Slack.  

You should participate in this hackathon if you want to be one of the first people to test the TOITbox and Toitware’s IoT platform and get to try their new programming language. 


Win great prizes

With every great competition comes great prizes and for this mini hackathon, there will be prizes for the winner. The panel will evaluate both ideas and the level of creativity.
