Do you want to have a positive impact on Wallonia as a
Hacker citizen? This is THE place to be! Join us for the second edition of CitizensofWallonia for a whole weekend fully dedicated on creating digital solutions that will -eventually- become actual businesses. CitizensofWallonia will take place from the 10th to the 12th of March at the UMons university.
Spread out over 3 days, Citizens of Wallonia will begin on Friday evening to end up Sunday afternoon with the traditional Award Ceremony open to the public. You can find all the useful information on the official website here. The hackathon is limited to 100 participants, you can register here. As all Hackathons, it won’t be the most comfortable experience, of course, but it will happen in the UMons with a dormitory to spend the nights, quality catering, videogames and lots of coffee! After all, hackathons means fun but not only!
The main topic is Smart City but more precisely the 3 Challenges are : Citizens interactions with public authorities, Mobility in the city as well as country side and Help unemployed people to get back to work.
Together with IBM (BlueMix), Microsoft (Azure) and Cronos, Proximus will provide powerful tools for hackers:
–EnCo.io ! Hackers will be able to easily integrate digital services in their own prototype. They will be able to integrate IoT with SEAAS API, send Sms with SMS API and interface with Azure Cloud that we resell here. They will be able to implement automatic access to DIS (Directory information Services) in 2 ways: to bring Address Autocomplete feature in their billing section to enhance UX, for instance, or bring auto correct via the Address Scoring API. We will also bring a small stock of ATTALK IoT RDK device, hackers will be able to purchase on EnCo to benefit instant and free shipping!
-Location Insights-crowd API : If you want to access the data behind MyAnalytics, you will love this data assets. It compiles anonymous and aggregated data about the density of mobile phone users at a given place & given time.
-Demo Kit: We built a demo set up that capture temperature on site. Hackers will be able to see how easily a prototype can capture temperature and display the values on a screen or even in augmented reality! They also will be able to access data for their own prototype.
-A Workshop by Gianni Manderioli, Business Innovation & Development Manager @ Proximus EnCo: After a quick presentation to open the hackathon, Gianni will animate a workshop for a deep dive into EnCo: use cases, marketplace guided tour, startup ecosystem positioning, etc….
See you there !
