Smart Cities Challenge Hackathon
Miami is a paradise but it is not without it's challenges! Transportation, sea level rise, digital divide are just a few issues our community cannot ignore. Come join developers and domain experts as we tackle many of these important issues that require your most creative ideas to solve.
Challenge: Improve the lives of people living in South Florida. The application you and your team will develop at the event should solve a social, economic, environmental or health problem using existing data sets, crowdsourced data, and/or data collected by a device you create.
Additional challenges will be announced at the event. Awards will be given to the team(s) which present the best solution.
