Now that the Visualization Virtual Hackathon is underway, I wanted to give everyone a brief update and answer a couple of questions that I have received.

 

All blog post submissions must be posted in the Hackathons space by March 13th, 12:00 AM EDT (GMT - 4). The blog post must contain:

  • A description of the general purpose of your project, including who and why someone would use it

  • A picture of your project in use

  • A video that demonstrates your project, http://camstudio.org/ is a nice screen capturing tool

  • A link to your GitHub repository where your source code is located. Please note that all source code must be published under the Apache 2.0 license.

 

There have been a couple of questions regarding how many teams are participating. For this hackathon, we are running two separate competitions, internal and external. The internal competition is made up of teams from OSIsoft, while the external competition is made up of non-OSIsoft employee. The two are not competing against each other. There are 20 total teams participating, 13 external and 7 internal. Below is part of my display that I have been using to track registrations

 

 

Please feel free to let me know if you have any additional questions.

 

Happy Hacking!
