OSIsoft will provide all of 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! 


You will be presented with an environment comprised of real assets and data. Using PI System components, our developer technologies, and any other tools you may want to bring to your solution, think outside the box and see how you can bring the Power of Data to consumers and businesses. Working together as part of a group to develop and implement your ideas, use your PI System, Data, and Innovative skills while learning from others. At the end of the event, your application will be judged by a group of experts. The top solutions will be awarded prizes, and you and your team will be publicly recognized for your achievement.

Q: What happened to the Programming Hackathon? 

A: We have rebranded the Hackathon in order to open up the event to more than just Programmers! Data Scientists, Business Analysts, and Power Users, to name a few, have innovated some amazing PI-based solutions with very little "programming". A diverse set of skills and knowledge will help a team to be successful at the Hackathon. With this change, we expect to have more participants with different backgrounds. If you are a Developer and still looking to develop a solution at the Hackathon, then this event is still for you.

A: If you are a PI System Developer, Architect, Integrator, Idea-person, Data Scientist, or a Technologist interested in industrial digital transformation applications this event is for you.

Q: What are the main benefits of participating in the hackathon? 

A: You can compete in a high-energy event for recognition and prizes while networking with talented and motivated professionals in the field as teammates and competitors.
