Event Details

We are inviting developers to write applications that solve some of the biggest problems with urbanization - namely waste management, water management and parking. We are looking for innovations that improve the quality of urban services; reduce the cost of providing these services and help improve the quality of life of citizens. 

You will develop your application on servers provided by us. We will also provide simulators for the sensors and other conditions. You will be provided complete documentation for on-boarding on the servers and the simulators.

 

FAQs

Q1. Do I need to be a TiE Member to participate?

No. This is open to everyone in the world.


Q2. What does it cost to participate?

This application can be submitted free of cost. Based on the information provided during registration, we will invite participation in the SmartCity IoT Hackathon. To ensure your commitment, you will be asked to pay a nominal fee of $15 at the time of your acceptance.


Q3. Is this for individual developers or can I participate with others as a group?

You can pool resources and participate as a group.


Q4. What is in it for me?

  • Associate with TiE’s global brand and its mission of fostering entrepreneurship.

  • Prove yourself in the cutting edge domain of IoT software development

  • Connect and interact with other IoT developers and others on an IoT career track

  • Work on problems in one of the fastest growing IoT domains - Smart City

  • Connect with organizations that are investing in IoT and Smart City

  • Tap into MentorConnect  - a unique TiE program that allows entrepreneurs and developers to connect with seasoned mentors and seek guidance about everything ranging from product strategy, go-to-market and sales for a new venture to building and advancing your career.

  • Everyone in your group wins a one-year membership in your local TiE chapter and a free pass to TiEcon in May 2016 – world’s largest conference on entrepreneurship

  • Win a cash prize. [Exact amout is yet to be finalized at this time.]


Q5. Do I have to develop in a particular language?

No. There are no restrictions on laguage or platform. We require that the developed application be original and it needs to be developed by you (including any members in your group). You will include an attestation to this effect when you submit your project.


Q6. When can I get more information on the simulation platform and the deployment platform?

We are working on completing these and running a test bed. We want to ensure that all services you need are working flawlessly when the Hackathon starts. You will receive the documentation long before the start. In order to ensure a level playing field, you will not be able to invoke the simulators or run the services until the start of the Hackathon.


Q7. Why are you asking me to register so early?

At this time, we are gauging interest from developers. We also want to give ourselves time to screen the applicants. Subsequently, we will ask the selected applicants to register - when you will pay the non-refundable fee.

 

Q8. Where can I contact the organizer with any further questions?

Send email to tie-smart-city@googlegroups.com
