Award Ceremony: IoT Challenge

Join us June 19th to wrap up the IoT challenge at We Write Code downtown in the East Village. We’ll have fun awards, food, and drinks. Bring your project and be prepared to share your triumphs or failures.

Official Rules

You must incorporate a WiFi enabled microcontroller in your project, and send or receive data from a network. One can be purchased from Area515 for $5 or you can supply your own. For details email [email protected].

Be prepared to share your code using GitHub, Pastebin, or other publicly linkable site. You may use code from other people. It must be open source and available online.

You can work on the project solo, or have a team.

Please be prepared to demo your project and let us know how it went. Even if nothing works, we would still like to hear what problems you had to work through. There will be time and assistance before presentations to get your device(s) on the venue’s wifi if needed. If your project needs to be at a specific location/environment/time to work, have a video of it in action to share.

Your project does not have to necessarily work when presenting. If your project goes south spectacularly, present anyway! Share what you learned and what you were trying to do. We have prizes for all states of completion!
