Case Challenges

The below three examples are purely suggestions and should be treated as inspiration to identify your own challenge to hack. These examples make use of all the APIs and platforms available at the Hackathon:

  • Smart Garden

    Hack out some green thumb applications. Let us see what you can do with our API sandbox to help keep our public spaces clean and beautiful.  Think public safety. Think biometrics

  • Let’s Lunch

    See if you can find the most efficient way to mash up these APIs to get a lunch date!  Combine GPS, maps, coupons, order management, and SMS APIs to order lunch at a discount, and see your friends who happen to be in the vicinity.

  • Health Tracking

    Take e-health services to the next level.  Use the provided tools to allow users to be seen by a physician, fill a prescription, and have medicine delivered to their door in one simple, seamless application.

  • Teams of 2-5
  • You will be assigned a team based on your expertise
