The Hackathon is scheduled to begin Friday, Oct 2 at 6pm and continues through Sunday, Oct 4 at the North Carolina State University (NCSU) Centennial Campus. On Friday and Saturday, teams develop their projects. On Sunday, project prototypes are finalized and judged. Six projects will be awarded entry to local startup accelerator Groundwork Labs. In the Groundwork Labs program, teams will be able to develop their prototype into investment-ready businesses to pitch investors at the Data4Decisions Conference, March 22-24, 2016 (http://data4decisionsevent.com).

The cost is $25 for students and $75 for non-students.
The Hackathon is for anyone (ages 18 and up) interested in developing connected devices for the Internet of Things. This includes students, innovators and business professionals who are thinking about starting a venture in IoT as well as those who want to experiment with IoT. The Hackathon provides a great opportunity to prototype a device or concept they are thinking about for a business, experiment with different aspects of IoT, and work with experts in the IoT market.
By attending the Hackathon, participants will be exposed to the latest IoT technologies including a wide range of sensors, actuators, indicators, Cellio wireless gateways and transceivers, the Bright Wolf cloud platform, IoT dashboards, analytics and logic flows – all supporting advanced IoT/M2M/IIoT concepts. Participants will also learn about pitching a venture idea, creating a startup and building a successful IoT technology business.
“This is a great opportunity for those interested in developing IoT solutions to have an chance to try out connected, smart technologies – all in one place,” said Bob Witter, CEO of Device Solutions. “These IoT technologies and applications include the Cellio wireless IoT connectivity devices from Device Solutions, a variety of sensors and modules, as well as the Bright Wolf IoT platform.”
In addition to Device Solutions and Bright Wolf, this event is being sponsored by Groundwork Labs, Smashing Boxes, ASSIST, RIoT (coordinated by Reveal Mobile and the Wireless Research Center), and many other IoT focused companies.
Some of the IoT experts include Chris Lamb, CTO of Device Solutions and James Branigan, Founder and Platform Architect of Bright Wolf.
