Hardware not required, sample sensor data, and 3 extra days to submit!

New deadline: Monday, August 6th @ 5 pm ET!

There isn’t any requirement to use any hardware on the solutions participating on this hackathon (we can’t talk about serverless and ask for mandatory hardware, right?), so feel free to use sample data coming from any simulator you want to use.

As IoT Hub allows you to connect your data sources to other services in Azure for further processing, no matter where it comes from, you can have just a simple console app sending messages or events periodically.

Making a great submission video

We know as devs you’re expertise lies in building apps - so keep building! - however, the submission video needs time too! It's often the first (and sometimes only!) thing that judges and voters review.

 

Your video tells the story behind your submission, providing a clear to showcase your app and talent in a video:

 

  • Establish your elevator pitch. In the first few seconds of your video, explain the pain point that your app solves using Microsoft Azure Iot. Within 60 seconds, viewers tend to lose interest, so use this time wisely to keep them engaged!
