Hackathon

Mendix and IoT

At this year’s hackathon, teams were tested on the theme – Mendix and IoT. Teams had several IoT use cases to choose from, including an event app that leverages sensor data collected at Mendix World. To facilitate rapid connectivity and deployment, participants had access to the KPN LoRa Network, a long-range network for connecting low-energy, low-data devices, plus one-click deployment.

With experts on-hand to guide the process, each team of 2-3 participants were given 24 hours to build a working IoT app. (Using Mendix, that’s plenty of time!) With one-click deployment and a free cloud slot, they published their apps for the judges. Finalists then presented their app during the closing keynote where attendees voted for their favorite using the Mendix World event app.
