  • AWS Cloud environment

    We prepared an AWS account for each team. These accounts have a budget with which you can use most of the basic services.
    For sure, you can use any other cloud provider for your prototyping. However, paid services are only offered on the provided AWS accounts.

    In case you need more advanced setup or services, please contact Björn Zucha or Arne Weiner via Slack.

  • Raspberry Pi Zero

    One Raspberry PI will be given to each team. The usage of the Raspberry PI is of cause optional.
    If you want to use it, please help yourself with the centrally provided sensors, bread boards, wires, etc.
    Please find below some helpful instructions on how to setup your Raspberry PI if needed.
    In case of any questions, please contact Yannik Kasper

    A detailed quick start guide can be found here: Raspberry Setup Guide

  • Slack

    Slack will be our main communication tool throughout the event.
    In addition to one global information and one overall IT-Support channel, each team member will have their private space for quick picture and link sharing.
    In case you are having any question regarding the usage or setup of Slack, please contact Marcel Gonsior

    Channels

    • #general-amsterdam: Please keep an eye on this channel, as general announcements, changes to agenda and other important communication will be shared in this channel
    • #ech-support-amsterdam: In case you are experiencing technical challenges, e.g. with the configuration of your AWS account or other, please make yourself heard in this channel. Arne Weiner and Björn Zucha from the BCG Platinion team will be happy to help!
    • Team channels: Every team should set up its own channel to collaborate and work together on its product. You can also leverage the video call and screen sharing features to work together effectively.
    • #random: Anything that is not strictly related to the event may be shared in this channel

    Hackspaces at WickedGrounds

    We’ll be hacking at WickedGrounds, Generaal Vetterstraat 55, 1059 BT Amsterdam, Netherlands

    Fridges are stocked, coffee machines running, and dinner will be served!

    We will have joint lunch and dinner at dedicated times (see Agenda for Friday and Saturday) to mingle and chat or exchange ideas about the hacks.
    Please feel comfortable around our offices. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to any of the team members at any time.

    Sleep at Olympic Hotel

    We will be staying at the Olympic Hotel, IJsbaanpad 12, 1076 CV Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    It’s only 15min walking distance to our Hackspace, thus we are happy to move our legs after a long day of hacking.

    Evaluation criteria

    Our three jury members will evaluate all prototypes along 5 dimensions to determine the best 3 teams.
    In the pitch presentation, it is important to sell your prototype as good as possible and to stand up to the questions of the jury.

    Good Luck!

    Use Case inspiration

    To help you in your ideation phase, we centrally prepared Use Cases we could think of. Please feel free to use these Use Cases below as inspiration.
    All Use Cases are examples only. You can choose a completely new Use Case, adjust the examples or combine them as you like.
    Creativity will be rewarded in the final evaluation.

    Let’s go beyond the obvious!
