EMC Hackathon - Mars Data Challenge - Wednesday, August 19

Sponsored by EMC

Virginia Room, Sheraton Seattle

You and your team just landed in Mars. As you prepare the base, massive Sun storms are coming your way. That was the last communication you had from Earth. Now connectivity to earth has been cut, and although the base has enough energy, your protective shields can only be running for a few minutes at the time, without recharging.

Your only chance of survival is to monitor the current temperature and radiation levels in the planet atmosphere to detect sun flares and activate your base shields for protection. You only have a few hours, to implement a sensor array, build and deploy the monitoring application to engage/disengage your shields, then fine tune an algorithm based on your data analysis that decides when to charge your shields and when to engage them for protection. Will you and your team survive?

The top three survivors (winners) will receive prizes and every single participant will walk away with a Raspberry Pi 2. Food, drink, and plenty of help will be provided!

For more information including suggested skills and experience, please visit the registration page. Spots are very limited!
