Belangrijke informatie


Wie zoeken we?

Het is handig als je met (delen van) de onderstaande zaken uit de voeten kunt (bekijk ook even de tools 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


Thema’s

Tijdens het uitwerken van je idee moet er ook een thema toegepast worden. De drie thema’s waaruit je kunt kiezen zijn:

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 en microchips om gegevens te verzamelen en beheren ten goede van het gebouw. haar functies en diensten. Dit maakt het gemakkelijker en efficiënter om een gebouw te beheren. Betrouwbaarheid, energieverbruik en het gebruik 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 internet technologieën zijn consumenten beter geïnformeerd 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 business processen 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?

Tools

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

  1. Location beacons, proximity beacons

  2. ALE, Airwave, Clearpass server

  3. Business 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


Regels

Werkplekken

Er zijn werkplekken, teamtafels, zitzakken en meer om aan de slag te gaan maar je kunt ook eigen werkhoek of werkplek creëren!

Teams

Het mooiste is als je zelf een team samenstelt van 2 tot 6 personen. Teams mogen bestaan uit (een mix van) Capgemini medewerkers, klantmedewerkers of studenten of anderen. En je schrijft je in op het thema van je keuze. Als je als team aanmeldt, vergeet dan niet om meteen een teampagina aan te maken tijdens je registratie. Dan kan de voorpret alvast beginnen.

Coderen

Alle code moet tijdens de Hackathon geschreven worden om zaken eerlijk te houden. Daarbuiten - alles kan - gebruik elke programmeertaal die je wenst, gebruik de beschikbare datasets, koppel met ons Automatiseringsplatform (Cortex) en gebruik open source libraries, API's naar wens.

Jury & Beoordeling

Nog niet alle juryleden zijn bekend. De juryleden komen vanuit klanten van Capgemini en Capgemini zelf. De volgende juryleden zijn bekend:

Denys Purwin – Manager IT, Brandloyalty

Dobias van Ingen – CTO, HP Enterprise Aruba

Jens Burgers – Director IT, Action

Pieter Schoehuijs – Group CIO, Capgemini

Frank Wammes, Apps CTO, Capgemini

Edwin Leinse, Infra CTO, Capgemini

Henk Vermeulen, AIE Lead, Capgemini

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 volgende criteria worden meegenomen in de beoordeling:

1. How innovative the project isw

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 thse olution is and how likely people are to be excited about it.


Tips

VOORBEREIDEN!

LET OP, werk alvast je idee uit, om deze te kunnen pitchen. Zo kun ook je alvast nadenken over welke tools je nodig hebt en programma’s op je laptop plaatsen. Hierdoor kun je ongestoord gaan hacken op 22 en 23 september.

We vragen elk deelnemend team hun projectidee en thema aan te melden via letsgetiton.bnl@capgemini.com , liefst ruim voor de start van de Hackathon! Aangemelde project ideeën mogen gepitched worden in 2 minuten. De manier waarop je je idee over de búhne wilt brengen is aan jou, liefst geen lijstje. Maak het interessant! Wij zorgen voor audio, video en presenteerfaciliteiten! (pitchen is niet verplicht)

Hackers die niet kunnen deelnemen aan het event tot aan de afsluiting komen niet in aanmerking voor prijzen.


Advies voor grootte team

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.

NOG LAATSTE PUNTEN

  • Stuur je project pitch in liefst vóór 22 september!

  • Na aanmelding ontvang je een uitnodiging voor deelname aan https://letsgetiton.slack.com/. Hier delen we alle relevante tech specs, kennis en weetjes in de aanloop naar 22 september! Én! Je kunt hier in gesprek met de Capgemini en partner experts die betrokken zijn bij deze Hackathon!

  • Heb je ons VLOG al gezien?

  • En onze pagina op Facebook? Deel in de voorpret!

Important information


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

Themes

While working on your idea, you have to apply a theme in you prototype. 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 client’s 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?

Tools

Availability of materials - We are working to make this available to you for hacking -

A dedicated Hackathon LAN powered by Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, including;

1. Location beacons, proximity beacons

Coding

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 Friday. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages, open-source libraries, and APIs.

JUDGING CRITERIA

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).

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
