The theme of this year is Innovation for better drinking water. We have partnered with the largest drinking water company in the Netherlands, Vitens, to provide you with real assets and data from their 50,000 km of main pipes. You will be presented with an environment comprised of real assets and data. 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 to develop and implement your ideas. Use all of your PI System, data, and innovative skills 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
