HG Intelligence, the company from which Synerise derives, was the partner of Beacon Valley Global http://beaconvalley.org/krakow/ and Beacon Vally Hackhaton http://hackathon.beaconvalley.io. These two events were brought to life to show people how beacons with a cooperation with smart mobile application can help people in their Cities. The event was organized by Kontakt.io our partner, provider of beacon hardware.
The first event, Beacon Vally Hackhaton was organized in Krakow in June 2015. Few groups of software developers, graphic designers and project managers had only 24 hours to create an application, that could help our city (Krakow) and the citizens. There were 3 categories for the application, they could choose: Beacon for Business (application to help local business to develop), Beacons for Fun (games, social apps), and Beacon for Good (to make a city more friendly, especially when it comes to offices and public institutions.
For 24 hours, several dozen of people had been working with more than 10 different projects.
Hackathon turned out be a huge success
What application won?
After big success of Beacon Valley Hackhaton in Krakow (June 2015) we decided to take part in the second edition Beacon Valley Global, which were organised in November 2015 in four cities all over the world: Kraków, New York, London and Guadalajara, by Kontakt.io as well. The idea was similar as it was few months before in Krakow, but different locations caused that more developers from four mentioned cities could share their ideas about smart city projects.
That time the categories of application subjects were: culture, health, commerce and transportation.
What were the results?
