IoT Hackathon at IUG 2023 in Budapest

IoT Hackathon at IUG 2023

Be prepared for our first IoT Hackathon at the International User Groups Conference (IUG) 2023 in Budapest!

This is your chance to attend an on-site full-day hackathon where we focus on developing innovative new IoT solutions or enhancing Cumulocity IoT with new functionality in heterogeneous teams. Be assured that our IoT experts will also be attending to accelerate your success!

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

Hacka… what?

Hackathon! This is a 1 or 2-day event where tech people & developers come together to be creative in heterogenous teams, think out of the box and “just do / develop things” to a specific topic. It’s all about trying out new stuff, compete with other teams, learn & connect with new open-minded people who are excited to share their visions and contribute with their unique skill sets.

From Software AG side we will bring all our experts who are happy to share their knowledge about Cumulocity IoT.
Also, some of our device partners like Kunbus will join with a set of cool devices, sensors & other equipment.

In the end each team will pitch their solution & idea to everybody and the best 3 will be selected & awarded by the experts & supporters. The day after the hackathon they will have the chance to pitch their solutions to the broader IoT audience at the IoT sessions or at least to be mentioned and recognized again.

In the IoT Hackathon, our main focus will be… you got it already … IoT and of course Cumulocity IoT.

Focus IoT

We don’t want to restrict the focus topic too much so everything that has something to do with IoT and Cumulocity IoT can be focused during that day.
So either you can bring your own topic which you ever wanted to try out or built but never had the time or knowledge to do so or you can just attend open-minded and pick one of our prepared IoT solution blueprints.


Here are some examples which fit well with our focus:

  • Building an energy metering/condition monitoring/tracking/you name it solution.
  • Integrating a new device type X to Cumulocity IoT or enhancing the integration to Cumulocity IoT
  • Implementing a new widget/frontend plugin/app or extending existing applications with new functionality
  • Build a plugin to extend the functionality.
  • Stream or integrate IoT data to a 3rd party system


Some of our blueprints will contain fun solutions like connected beer brewery so don’t worry, we will find something for you if you don’t have yet any idea.
If you already have an idea and are unsure if it matches or if you have any questions about the focus, don’t hesitate to get in contact with me!
