Join us at the Programming Hackathon to learn, network, and compete for prizes!

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 23 hours!


The theme of this year is Renewable Energy. The data set is provided by Juwi who is sharing several thousand data streams from their operations with us. You will be presented with an environment comprised of real assets. Using PI System components and our developer technologies, think outside the box and see how you can bring the Power of Data to businesses, servicing companies, or asset owners. 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. Stay tuned and follow us on PI DevClub Forums and @PIDevClub. If you have any questions about this event, please contact
