Announcing the Internet of Things World Forum Hackathon Winners
From October 10 to 12 , in 1871 venue, Cisco hosted a competitive 24 hours hackathon (#IoTWFHack), produced by Monkeybars, one of the startups at 1871. More than 100 hackers on 15 teams competed to develop a creative solution using one or a combination of four software platforms developed by Cisco, including Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX); Data in Motion (DMO); Cisco Instant Connect (CIC); and IOx application development platform. They also had access to Cisco 819 ISR routers.
The teams’ solutions were judged based on practicality, creativity, design, and how they used the technologies.
The winners of the 2014 Internet of Things World Forum Hackathon are:
