We are excited to present the first LATAM Regional Conference Programming Hackathonce 2017 winners!


The theme of this year's Hackathon was Analytics for Smarter Energy Aware Campus. UC Davis, one campus of the University of California, kindly provided 6 months of energy data. Participants were encouraged to create killer applications for UC Davis by leveraging the PI System infrastructure.


The participants had 10 hours to create an app using any of the following technologies:

  • PI Server 2017
  • PI Web API 2017
  • PI Vision 2017
  • PI OLEDB Enterprise 2016 R2


Our judges evaluated each app based on their creativity, technical content, potential business impact, data analysis and insight and UI/UX. Although it is a tough challenge to create an app in 10 hours, four groups were able to finish their app and present to the judges!



1st place: Drone Syma X5sw 2.4ghz 4 Canais Wifi Câmera , vouchers for trainings, one year free subscription to PI Developers Club

They developed an app named Connected40 the Value of People.  This app is a web application that shows the buildings on a map. When the user clicks on a building, it will display the energy KPIs of the building. They've created a new KPI which is energy per person to compare the efficiency of the building among others.


The team used the following technologies:

  • HTML5/JavaScript
