Hackathon BRIC - BF

Next week, from 24 to 26 September 2018, the Brussels Regional Informatics Centre (BRIC) and Bruxelles Formation will hold their second hackathon focussing on Smart Cities and the Internet of Things.

The participants are eighteen trainees from Bruxelles Formation from two different yet complementary courses (Java developers and developers of Android and iOS mobile apps), who will be divided into six teams. Each team will have to develop a mobile app able to collect data on your smartphone via sensors. These apps must relate to one of the following three themes (two projects per theme):

  • Smart car parks
  • Measurement of air quality levels
  • Geolocation of urban noise

The digital “lingua franca” to be used during our upcoming marathon is Java, which also defines our work at the BRIC, where all applications are written in this object-oriented, platform-independent programming language. It therefore goes without saying that we are constantly looking for people with some serious Java skills to help develop our applications.

Are you a whizz with Java? Take a look at our available jobs and let us hear from you!

In the meantime, we are looking forward to seeing what the Bruxelles Formation trainees come up with…
Are you also curious about their projects and do you want to know which team will be the winner on 26 September? Then keep a close eye on our website and our social media!
