Droidcon MEC Hackathon | mercoledì, 25. novembre 2020

Droidcon MEC Hackathon 

Once your team is registered for the Hackathon you can start working immediately! This is an extended Hackathon meaning you benefit from extra time to develop your prototype. All teams have full access to the server, technologies and information manuals.

If you need assistance with the technologies you'll find information manuals at hand, experts you can contact throughout the development phase, and lots of experts and technologists on-site at the Hackathon event 25-26 November in Turin.

You don't have to bring your whole team to Turin! If some of your team can't be present at the Hackathon event 25-26 November they can continue to work remotely and you can send just two members to participate on-site at the event, presentation, judging and prize giving.

Submissions should include a description of the idea; the target MEC application; information on any intention to reuse / integrate code from past activities, or other projects / prototypes / products (highly recommended); and a short CV for each team member. Any supporting material (e.g. short video clips) related to the idea is welcome.

IMPORTANT: Submissions should clearly state how the team intends to use ETSI MEC APIs (available at https://forge.etsi.org/).NOTE: Whilst the use of MEC service APIs is not mandatory, teams are encouraged to utilize them.

Submission deadline is 31 May - 15 June notification to participants

Submissions will be evaluated by the Droidcon MEC Hackathon Organizing Committee based on various criteria, e.g. relevance to the Call for Developers, assessed relevance of the selected use case, usage of MEC APIs, composition of the team, level of maturity of the project. Participants selected for the competition will be also admitted to join the Intel® Edge Builders program
