Hello World!

Cloud Robotics Hackathon

Cloud Robotics Hackathon

Join the global Cloud Robotics Hackathon today! Find a location near you.

See the event rules, register your team before February 18th 2012 (or February 24th for Montreal, Waterloo and Westchester County) and get a FREE DFRobotShop Rover (a 99$ Arduino-compatible robotic development platform) for the teams to keep after the event.

What?

Embrace the era of social machines by participating at the first Cloud Robotics Hackathon, a full weekend of hacking and learning about cloud-robotics and social machines. By using web services and readily available programming tools we invite hackers, programmers and tinkerers to create fun and useful robotic behaviours. Want to know more? See more information about the event, and register your teams or organize your local hackathon.

When?

From March 2nd to March 4th 2012. See the event schedule for more information.

Where?

This initiative is born in Montreal but we are challenging every other city to form local groups and hack on the same date. See the locations to participate or organize your own local hackathon.

What do you need?

Bring your own laptop (or desktop) for hacking and robots or parts if you already have some. We will provide FREE food, caffeine, some awesome local robots (see the locations for more details about local robots), WiFi, electric power and a DFRobotShop Rover.

Robots?

Programming robots can be intimidating for some, but fear not! If you know the basics of programming and understand that a  motor (called actuator in robotics) is used to move things, and a sensor is used to sense things, then you are ready to get started in robotics. See the recommended tools to get prepared to the event.
