What will happen at the Learn, Hack & Play Day at #SITWDF?
While the Saturday will be a regular inside track, Friday is there to allow you to play around with technology and gadgets, such as IoT technology. With presentations of your projects works and a jury, Friday has also elements of a hackathon.
SAP supports the day with rooms, catering… but also with some gadgets from the d-shop (which is SAP’s approach to let employees play around with new technology inhouse) Please find below a list of what the d-shop has already in stock to play with.
However please feel encouraged to bring your own IoT gear with you…devices with which you worked already…or stuff, which wanted to try out all the time.
We invite you to come up with your own projects ideas: the main criteria for these ideas are:
– you can learn something new,
– you can deliver some initial functionality until friday afternoon and
– you’d have fun doing it!
In case you have project ideas right now, please comment in this blog entry.
In the morning: we invite the participants do a barcamp-style ideation session & build teams & decide on a small scale IoT project to work on. Teams should be 3-5 people. Even preforming teams is good!
Essentially the whole Friday (until 4:30pm) gives you time to work on your projects or to mingle with your colleagues.
Until lunchbreak, different speakers offer ~1h intro sessions into specific aspects of IoT & idea visualization. (e.g. using HCP for IoT). Especially we will have a Sketching for IT session, which helps every to easier draw a summary of your ideas and market it to the right people.
You can even join if you have no technical background!
Later mentors are available to help you when you are stuck implementing your idea during Friday afternoon.
Starting from 5pm, teams present their prototypes, both what the original idea was, and you achieved on this day. A jury evaluates the projects and awards the winner.
Party & (Winter) BBQ starts around ~6pm.
