🧑‍💻 2nd IoT Hackathon at IUG Conference 2024 in Dublin

We are doing it again!

We are doing it again! We will have our 2nd IoT Hackathon at the IUG Conference 2024 in Dublin!

After the success of the last year IoT Hackathon at the IUG 2023, which brought up a lot of fantastic solutions and was quite a fun event, it was not a very tough decision that we will repeat it in 2024.

This is your chance to attend an on-site full-day hackathon where we focus on 3 different challenges to build amazing stuff in heterogeneous teams. Be assured that our IoT experts, you might know from this community, will also be attending to accelerate your success!

There are no participation fees, so make sure to register early as the seats are limited!

If you attended last year and have already read enough, don’t hesitate and register yourself here:

For all the others, let’s find out what we have planned for this IoT Hackathon.

3 IoT challenges

This year we will have 3 amazing challenges according to our IoT Ecosystem dimensions:


1. Device Integration

One of the main focus of this challenge will be thin-edge.io.
With the upcoming thin-edge.io release 1.0, the device management & Cumulocity IoT integration is nearly complete. Make use of that and integrate & extend the integration of any kind of devices to Cumulocity IoT. Is there something missing in thin-edge.io? Build your own plugins for thin-edge.io to make it even more powerful!

Also of course all other topics closely related to Device Integration like the new MQTT Service, LWM2M, Device Management, OPC-UA, LPWAN Connectivity or any other connectivity protocol or stack will be part of this challenge.

So if you are a device vendor or customer who is looking forward to connect your device to Cumulocity IoT within one day or if you want to bring your integration to the next level: This is your challenge!

2. Application Enablement - UI

This challenge is for all the frontends guys. Either you are pretty new to frontend development with Cumulocity IoT and just want to learn or try out or you are already experienced and have already implemented some. There are already tons of community UI plugins available but surely not everything is covered. You have a great idea of a UI plugin that could be beneficial for all? Great, let’s build it together!

This challenge is a perfect match for all kind of customers and partners who are looking forward to build frontend assets on top of Cumulocity IoT or want to improve their skills to do so!

3. IoT Solutions

You have a great idea of an IoT solution built on top of Cumulocity IoT? This is the right challenge for you to implement anything in regard to Cumulocity IoT. Be it a new system integration supported by a microservice or a (small) solution leveraging Cumulocity IoT Dashboarding & Streaming Analytics capabilities.

The IoT Solutions challenge is the perfect challenge for those who are the IoT brains behind IoT solutions: IoT Solution Architects, designing small end-to-end solutions and bringing them to live some clicks & customization.
