Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore - IDA
Code::XtremeApps:: (CXA) hackathon is back this year to challenge minds and inspire innovative solutions for current issues that affect us. The theme this year will be “My Smart City: Connecting Our Senses”. The focus will be on sharing of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and data, to promote a heightened level of awareness in the world we live in.
Participants will be challenged to solve real problems from organisations across various sectors – Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), PSA Singapore and Suntec Singapore - through IoT technology and standards. The aim is to discover new and innovative solutions that give them competitive advantage in the businesses/services that they are operating on, and thus galvanize Singapore to becoming a Smart City.
Registration is now open, on 5th May! The competition will be held from the 14th to 15th of July 2017.
What’s different this year is the challenge statements will be released 6 weeks prior to the 24-hour final hackathon. Participants will now have the opportunity to develop better and more complete solutions for this challenge.
CXA has three main tracks - a 24-hour School and Open Category, as well as a 3-hour Junior Category to get the young ones interested and exposed to tech and inventing.
