Builtworlds Hackathon 2018
October 19 - 21, 2018
5:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Salt Flats Innovation House
113 N May St., Chicago, IL 60607
It's a weekend-long competition where all-star developers, makers, and built industry experts gather to hack solutions to burning built world problems.
What's a built world problem?
Anything affecting the world we live in — namely, our cities, buildings, and infrastructure.
How it works
- FORM Teams of 3-6 hackers form and choose a problem to solve.
- HACK Each team has roughly 36 hours to churn out a prototype solution.
- PITCH Each team presents their ideas to a panel of judges.
- WIN The winners receive a $$$ prize.
We have two challenges for you to enter:
the best application of software
In traditional Hackathon-style, teams in the software track will compete to create the best software solution to a built industry problem (that is, any problem in our cities, infrastructure or buildings). If you’re a developer or want to participate on a dev team for the weekend, this track is for you.
the best application of hardware or robotics
This challenge is meant for developers who are interested in Internet of Things technology and creating solutions that integrate sensor-based hardware with software. Each maker team will have access to devices, sensors, a network server, and application server in order to create solutions for a smarter city.
First Place will receive $10,000
Second Place will receive $5,000
