Smart Cities Hackathon that kicks off the 5 hackathon series up the CT coast to Providence, RI

A community technology event that’ll bring together 100+ developers, designers and creative minds to develop projects centered around Smart Cities: including IoT, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality tacks. Featuring tech from IBM, Flowthings.io, BlippAR and others, participants and attendees will have the opportunity to hear from, learn from, and apply amazing insights from industry leaders.

This hackathon is the first of a special series that will all focus on New Haven's Union Station, which will be specially instrumented for IoT, and modeled for VR.

All three days will be completely open to the public, with speakers, robots, virtual reality and other technology on display for attendees, while specially designated areas for hackathon participants will ensure freedom to work and build the next great breakthrough!
