Durf jij het aan?

We dagen je uit om deel te nemen aan aan de Capgemini Automation Hackathon! Schijf je vandaag nog in! Je kunt je inschrijven als individu of als team. Een team kan bestaan uit Capgemini medewerkers, klanten, partners en studenten of een mix daarvan. Als je als team aanmeldt, vergeet dan niet om meteen een teampagina aan te maken tijdens je registratie. Dan kan de voorpret alvast beginnen.

Wie zoeken we?

Het is handig als je met (delen van) de onderstaande zaken uit de voeten kunt (bekijk ook even de configuratie/hardware die we beschikbaar stellen verderop).

Linux and/or Windows Server Platforms

configuration management tools

deployment- and monitoring-tooling

Coding knowledge and knowledge of software design techniques

(modular thinking, decomposition, refactoring)

Affinity with infrastructure (Virtualization, Storage, Networking)

Affinity with cloud solutions such as Azure, AWS, OpenStack, CloudFoundry


De thema's!

Smart Buildings

Stel je voor. Een gebouw dat zodanig is geautomatiseerd dat alle processen relevant voor dat gebouw (denk aan verwarming, ventilatie, airconditioning, verlichting, beveiliging en meer) automatisch werken. Een gebouw dat is voorzien van sensoren, bakens and microchips om gegevens te verzamelen en beheren ten goede van het gebouw. haar functies en diensten. Dit maakt het gemakkelijker en efficienter om een gebouw te beheren. Betrouwbaarheid, energieverbruik en het gebuik van de ruimte verbetert. Laat staan welke gemakken er te ontwikkelen zijn voor jou als gebruiker van een kantoor, schoolgebouw of treinstation!


The Smart Store

Dankzij het internet is er een compleet nieuw verkoopkanaal onstaan. E-commerce. Dankzij slimme internettechnologieen zijn consumenten beter geinformeerd dan ooit. Het heeft de consument in een compleet nieuwe positie gebracht, de consument is machtig en weet kan kopen waar het wil. Welke oplossingen zou jij kunnen bedenken om retailers beter in te laten spelen op klantwensen? Hoe zorg je ervoor dat die klant juist bij jou koopt en hoe zorg je voor een loyale klant? Zijn er mogelijkheden om de eerstvolgende aankoop van een klant in te schatten? Of is er ruimte in de logistieke keten om goederen nog sneller bij de klant te krijgen?


Real Time Customer Insights

Welke businessprocessen kunnen worden geautomatiseerd zodat ze compleet transparant worden en hoe zorg je ervoor dat de proces performance real time beschikbaar is voor je klant? Kun jij een geautomatiseerd proces ontwikkelen dat klanten helpt te anticiperen op de eerstvolgende factuur. Een factuur die zo duidelijk is dat je meteen weet waarvoor je betaalt. Hoe zorgen we voor een verbeterde klantervaring door middel van een geautomatiseerde ervaring?


Dus!

Onze Hackathon stelt je in staat om te werken aan een specifiek idee of epic waar jij in gelooft en enthousiast over bent zonder dat je de afleiding hebt van werk of studie. Wij zorgen voor ruim voldoende eet, drink en ontspanningsgelegenheid!

LET OP - Voor elk thema geldt dat we je uitdagen een visuele en pakkende toepassing te laten zien van beschikbare data, hardware en platform. Je project wordt beoordeeld op basis van de mate van innovatie, complexiteit, relevantie (in het gekozen thema) en kwaliteit (van zowel de demonstratie/pitch als van de uitvoering van het project/kwaliteit van de geschreven code).


De tools.

We werken eraan flink wat zaken beschikbaar te hebben! Dat begint bij een dedicated Hackthon LAN - powered by Aruba, a HP Enterprise company. Dat zal voorzien zijn van;

  1. Location beacons, proximity beacons
  2. ALE, Airwave, Clearpass server
  3. Buisiness Data Lake providing access to datasets
  4. Cortex based Automation platform
  5. DHCP server
  6. Dedicated team mySQL db and PHP webserver
  7. Gitlab
  8. Hadoop
  9. Hue bridges
  10. Arduino/Raspberry Pi's

MORE to be announced!

Hello,

We are excited to announce:

Capgemini's 24 hour Automation Hackathon taking place on September 22nd and 23rd!

:-)

The Hackathon lets mixed Capgemini/Client teams and some Capgemini only teams design and build innovative Automation solutions within three themes. The Hackathon will be based around building new opportunities on the Cortex Software based Automation Platform. We will have loads of supplier expert knowledge and hardware available (HPE, Cortex, Intel and more to be confirmed!) next to a nicely populated series of datasets relevant to the themes.


Who are we looking for?

It would help if you have any experience/knowledge of (some of) these areas (Also check out the configuration we provide above):

Bachelor of science / Master degree (or equivalent experience)

Linux and/or Windows Server Platforms

configuration management tools

deployment- and monitoring-tooling

Coding knowledge and knowledge of software design techniques (modular thinking, decomposition, refactoring) Affinity with infrastructure (Virtualization, Storage, Networking)

Affinity with cloud solutions such as Azure, AWS, OpenStack, CloudFoundry


The themes are:

Smart Buildings

Imagine a building that uses automated processes to automatically control the building’s operations including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, security and other systems. A smart building that uses sensors, beacons and microchips, in order to collect data and manage it according to a business’ functions and services. This helps to improve asset reliability and performance, it reduces energy use, optimizes how space is used and minimizes the environmental impact of buildings.

The Smart Store

The Internet enabled an entirely new channel in online e-commerce, and smart Internet technologies informed and empowered consumers like never before, placing shoppers in an unprecedented position of power and authority. What automation opportunities can you think of to help retail business optimize their sales, customer loyalty and can we even help retail predict their clients next purchase or improve the availability and logistics of their goods?

Real Time Customer Insights

Can you think of automating business processes that are completely transparent whilst its performance is real time available anytime? Could we design and build automated process that help clients to anticipate on the next invoice whilst allowing them to better understand what’s on there? How could we improve client and end user satisfaction by giving them an automated experience?

..So,

The Hackathon allows you to work on a specific idea that you and your team believe in AND are excited about. You can work on it without having the distractions of business as usual and you can truly collaborate on something that matters to your business!

* In each theme you will be challenged to demonstrate a visually striking application of available data, hardware and platform. Your project will be judged based on Innovation, Relevance, Complexity and Quality (both the pitch as well as performance of the solution/quality of the code).

Prizes

The top three teams participating in the hackathon will win prizes.

1st team: Prize valued at approx. € 1500

2nd team: Prize valued at approx. € 1250

3rd team: Prize valued at approx. € 750

Prizes will consist of hardware, visiting a relevant congress and the sponsorship to actually build your solution AFTER the hackathon.

All code developed as part of the hackathon must be fresh. To keep things fair, all codes must be written during the length of the hackathon starting at 18:30 on Thursday. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages, open-source libraries, and APIs.


HACKATHON REQUIREMENTS

Each team is required to submit their project via letsgetiton.bnl@capgemini.com no later than August 31st. Accepted project submissions will be given 2 minutes to pitch their project at the start followed by a 1 minute Q&A session. Your presentation format is up to you, but it is recommended to share a very brief visual, e.g. PowerPoint or a video. We will provide you with projection equipment.

Hackers who can’t attend the closing event on September 23rd will not be eligible for the prizes.


JUDGING CRITERIA

Depending on which challenge you choose, you might be judged on up to 4 criteria:

1. How innovative the project is

Includes the degree of innovation demonstrated using the automation platform, data sets and available hardware.

2. User experience and design

Includes how user-friendly and aesthetic the solution is.

3. How well it works

Includes the extent to which the solution does what it is supposed to do and how good the code is written from a performance point of view.

4. Hot factor - Potential

Includes how compelling the solution is and how likely people are to be excited about it.


Judges

Not all judges have been confirmed yet. They will be a mix of people representing the company you work for and Capgemini team members. Judges confirmed for now are:

- Pieter Schoehuijs - Capgemini Group CIO
- Frank Wammes - Capgemini Apps CEU CTO
- Edwin Leinse - Capgemini Infra CEU CTO


Some advice on team size

The Fun-Yet-Productive Crew (5–6 people):

Roles:
-The Econ/Business person. Probably has no place being at a hackathon, but this person can whip up a business plan and be your lead demo-er/presenter. This person will run out of things to do and start talking to people on other teams. Keep him or her available if you feel the need to.
- The back-end person. Gets all of the databases and cloud services set up. This is normally a full-time job, since you’ll be forced to integrate your back-end with a slapstick front-end.
-The UX person. This person took the Code Academy classes in HTML and CSS, and is sad that they need JavaScript/JQuery to do all the things asked of them by the developers. They try learning JavaScript, and you ultimately end up having a static website.
-The Pointing person. The person who’s a self-renowned computer programmer, but spends most of his time trying to debug everyone else’s code to avoid doing any work. He might surprise you and write something while everyone else sleeps. Spends a lot of time on forums and drinking energy drinks in order to appear he is doing productive things.
-The ‘All-the-work’ doers (1–2 people). These people build the application. You’ll sometimes hear them exclaim, and everyone else will feel huge relief and high-fives will be shared. If they sleep, you fail. If they are frustrated, you will be frustrated too.

Well-Oiled Machine* (3–4 people):
Roles:
-Back-end person: This person is in charge of coding the backend, but thanks to their excellent knowledge-background, they finish in 8 hours and use the rest of the time to play LoL on the HD monitor they brought with.
-The skeleton-writer: This person writes the skeleton for the application, including buttons, sliders, etc.
-The meat-maker: This person designs the art, writes your ‘secret-sauce’ algorithms, and works with the skeleton-writer to keep the app moving smoothly.
