  • pachube

The First Pachube International Internet of Things Hackathon is a global 24-hour event that starts on April 8, 2011 at 2pm (UK time) and ends on April 9, 2011 at 2pm (UK time). (kiilo 08.04.2011 15:00 MEZ - 09.04.2011 15:00 Mez)

Calling all developers, designers, makers, mixers, mashers, tinkerers, philosopher-mechanics and sales engineers! Join us in helping to define and build the Internet of Things on Global Internet of Things Day! Use Pachube if you want, or build on other APIs - make something physical, or virtual; hardware or software; conceptual or practical - the point is for us to spend 24 hours connecting up our things to the web, our environments to our things, and our things to US! Starts on April 8, 2011 at 2pm UK time (which is 10pm in Tokyo, 11pm in Sydney, 6am in San Francisco) and goes on for 24 hours until 2pm (UK time) on April 9, 2011.

We will continue to update this page with details.

We will be hosting a hackathon here in London (address to be confirmed) but we also expect Pachube's global community to host sister events around the world. The idea is for us all, in countries throughout the world, to spend 24 hours on Global Internet of Things day building new devices, applications, and tools, and experimenting with bleeding-edge (beta) Pachube features, connecting to each others' devices and environments in realtime across the planet, and building up a repertoire of innovative applications and services for the Internet of Things that make the vision of a connected planet a reality!

Please either join us in London or host your own local event!
