We will provide all the tools, subject matter experts, and a ready-to-start environment. Just show up with your ideas and energy to develop a killer app in 22 hours!


The theme of this year is Innovation around Smart Cities. We have partnered with one of the more innovative airports in the US, San Diego Airport, to provide you with real assets and data from the Airport to work with. You will be presented with an environment comprised of real assets within a smart city context. Using PI System components and our developer technologies, think outside the box and see how you can bring the Power of Data to consumers and businesses. You will work together as part of a group and work out your ideas. Use all your PI System development knowledge while learning from others. At the end, your application will be judged by a group of experts. The top applications will be awarded prizes, and you and your team will be publicly recognized for the achievement. Moreover a select group of hackers will have an opportunity to pitch their idea to a group of panelists comprised of business and investment leasers. Stay tuned and follow us on PI DevClub Forums and @PIDevClub. If you have any questions about this event, please contact
