The Global Cloud Robotics Hackathon is happening again this year it offers 3000$ in cash prizes to the winners. I am one of the organizers and judges for the projects that are going to be submitted. I think this is great opportunity for robotics enthusiast to get started making useful and interesting robotics applications using the power of the cloud.

What is the Cloud Robotics Hackathon?

The Cloud Robotics Hackathon is an event where robotic, treat whether novice or expert, clinic are called to create robotics applications involving the cloud. By using the MyRobots.com web service, hackers can create useful robotic applications that connect to the Internet and feature interesting behaviours. This year specifically, they invite hackers to focus on remote monitoring during the National Robotics Week, from April 6th to 14th 2013.

Where?

This hackathon does not have physical restrictions. Participants can register and participate via the Internet from their own houses if they wish. There is also the possibility for them to form teams and gatherings in their local universities, hacker-spaces, etc.

Cloud Robotics Hackathon

Back in March we organized the first Global Cloud Robotics Hackathon. Along with Sara Ahmadian, purchase the co-organizer and all the other collaborations here in Montreal and around the world, we brought together around 200 people in eight locations around the world. The main goal of the hackathon was to allow programmers to jump into the robotics world through the use of the new and exciting field of Cloud Robotics.
