WoT proud to be a part of the inaugural Hackfest at IoT Week London

As part of London’s IoT Week 2014 there will be a three day Hackfest taking place and Web of Things, along with partners of the European Project COMPOSE are proud to announce that we will be organizing one of the challenges: inviting enthusiasts to bring their ideas along and build their prototypes utilizing cutting edge platforms provided by numerous sponsors and European Projects.


The COMPOSE project will be taking part in the Hackfest by organizing one specific challenge, where our platform will be exposed for participants to get creative and demonstrate the value of Open Data integrated with the IoT. The idea is to make connected devices interact based on inputs from public data: using features of the COMPOSE project for composing services that fetch data from public repositories, process them and communicate the information to embedded devices.

And you are invited to join us!

  • The IoT Forum and the European research cluster on the Internet of Things (IERC) are pleased to invite IoT experts, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and researchers to its first IoT Week Hackfest.
  • Participants will be offered access to state of the art IoT infrastructures provided by leading European research projects and initiatives. In addition, participants will benefit from crash courses provided by the project engineers.
  • Four challenges will be presented: Connectivity, Semantic Interoperability, Service Composition and Business Focus. Teams will be evaluated against the criteria of cooperation, disruption, maturity and interoperability.

The Hackfest is strongly supported by the BUTLER, OpenIoT and Smart-Action IERC projects, together with COMPOSE from the cloud services area as well as Gatesense, a private initiative supported by Grundfos.

There will also be several prizes on offer from the sponsors (IoT Forum, COMPOSE, HOPU and TST-Sistemas)
