Eighteen04 are pleased to reveal "So, Newy.." - an Urban IOT Hack rapid prototyping event - designed to explore how the urban fabric and cultural life of Newcastle can be enhanced by the Internet of Things (IoT) through a tech infused hackathon designed to Connect, Build + Inspire.

Scheduled for 25-27 October 2018, local teams will form to build new digital prototypes that explore Challenge topics in our "So, Newy" themed event, for the chance to win cash and startup support prizes, along with opportunities for early stage pilot projects with Newcastle City Council. With DevOpsDaysNewy running just prior to the event, there should be digital talent aplenty, but remember that good concepts need diverse teams.

Eighteen04 and our event host, Laughing Mind, invite cross-disciplinary teams from IT, Business, Design, Sociology, IoT, Engineering and Environment Science backgrounds to imagine IoT insertions, activations, integrations and solutions which benefit citizens, business, community and Government. Come and join the conversation with our #sonewy #newydex event hashtags.
