Who is behind #MMBbSHack17

Interview with David Brett

David Brett MMBbSDavid is the driving force behind the MMBbS-Hackathon 2017. After participating in 4 #netacadde Hackathons, he was fully hooked and decided to run his own.  With the huge support and encouragement from Joachim Maiß and Joachim Kemmries from the MMBbS Hannover, it is already clear that more Hackathons will follow.

David and his colleague Andre Neumann used 6 months of solid preparation time which resulted in an extended 4-day Hackathon planned down to the last detail. ” … and therefore running very smoothly” says participating expert Jochen Berbuer, experienced in Hackathons himself.

It started on Monday 15.05.2017. Six teams identified
< Pollution > < City Security > < People > < Rubbish > < Shopping > < Traffic > as their group topics within the overall theme „Living in an Urban Environment“.

Analog and Digital

analog-digital

Working with others when you do not know them, their backgrounds and have never met

Today’s problems and issues are complex. To solve them we need to cross borders across professions, languages and cultures. There is no simple way. Technically this may seem easy. I agree. What many of us do not consider is that the users of technology are people. We need to work together!

Collaboration in a digital workplace requires us to learn how to work together without knowing what we understand with all our senses when we meet in person.

Developing ideas into solution requires critical thinking.

How do you tell someone that your idea, approach or solution might be a better choice without hurting this person’s feeling and then win them to build on existing ideas and knowledge together?

At the #3CityCreathon in Berlin, Bratislava and Rome participants were able to train this :

  • Selling your ideas in only 3 minutes – Elevator Pitches
  • Give feedback in a form that can be accepted
  • Digital communication between three cities

This combination between digital communication and analog collaboration developing an idea in teams is the digital workplace of the future present.

A perfect illustration for the eSkills conference in Bratislava where 200 policy makers, business leaders and experts discussed how digital technologies are transforming our lives at a pace never seen before.

Many thanks to all participants, organizers, decision makers, jury members, experts and our digital audience.

If the spark has reached you and you are eager to run a creathon or hackathon yourself, contact your local NetAcad contact.

Until next time

Inspirational Regards

Jutta

You have 200 volunteers

… how would you solve your problem?

whatsapp-image-2016-10-17-at-18-35-11It is not an easy task to collect ideas, from the best to the worst ideas … brainstorming is not simple.

It is really important to go for quantities of ideas first. There are about 3000 raw ideas needed to get one successful product or service.

Tomorrow at about 11:00 the idea pitching to the jury sitting in our three locations Berlin, Bratislava and Rome is on the agenda.

We are inviting everyone to join us in this connect moment and share their thoughts, ideas and questions you might have.

Feel free to forward the invitation to your network – your neighbour, your family, your friends, your colleagues … and of course, your mailman.

We support the cultural change digital transformation is driving and want to make sure that sustainability and social benefit for all parts of our society are always part of the plan.

Day 2: #CLHackathon Berlin

#CLEur #CLHackathon #benetacad @CiscoNetAcad

day2 hmm day2 gadgets day2

Inspiration : Ideation : Consolidation : Prototyping

On day II prototyping starts with opening the box and getting the gear out – sensors, arduinos, more sensors …

Theme: Urban Living - sharing and caring

I had the pleasure to get to know the teams and their projects. Here is a short glimpse into the IoE Solutions that are in the process of being born:

 


Layer8

Layer 8

Layer 8

The team is creating a smart, cloud based pill dispenser that makes life easier for patients, doctors and insurances. Quite a challenging idea with a need for cooperation with different stakeholders. Challenging also for IT students who are in need of medical and mechanical knowledge for the implementing their project.


PlantNet

PlantNet

PlantNet

The solution being developed is a monitor for parameters critical to plant development and well-being. There are similar products on the market already but PlantNet will consist of a platform, an app and community where exchange of information as well as teaching and learning can happen. This taps into the urban gardening culture in Berlin where it is trendy for bankers to go to an after work gardening party.


The Fast for the Tourists

Smarter Transport Tasks Force

Smarter Transport Tasks Force

This application collects information about tourist locations and connects them through the interest and wish of tourist in your city. It should also have a function to determine capacity of the locations to distribute visitors in your city more efficiently. The business model is based on the win-win situation created for tourist locations, the city and the tourists.


NoPe (No Pollution)

NoPe

NoPe

Smart trash containers. But the team specialized on the particular situation of mobile installations, fairs, exhibitions and concerts where network connectivity, theft, vandalism plays a role. Through an integration with social media people who do clean up are being rewarded for their actions. This is something I would love to see on my next concert.


Smarter Transport Tasks Force

The fast for the tourists

The fast for the tourists

They are developing a system that is monitoring the number of people in transport unit for better distribution plus additional benefits for public transport operators, users and city governments.

 

 


Pimp my road

Pimp my road

Pimp my road

All of the team members grew up in big cities and they hate to stand in traffic jams. Their application is aiming to optimize traffic in cities and they want to use sensors for real-time measurement of traffic movement.
>>> the group later changed their name and project to “Heavy Breathing”

A few minutes to Berlin Hackathon Opening

#CLEur #CLHackathon #benetacad @CiscoNetAcad

Marc and Eugene Advice Before
Last Advice from Marc & Eugene – Hackathon moderators

Speaking with Marc and Eugene just before the official start

Jutta: Marc, you and Eugene have a lot of Hackathon experience between the two of you already. Were they all the same or can you explain us what was different?

Eugene: Yes, we did Hackathons in Milan, Helsinki, Brussels, Hamburg.  Every hackathon is different though – it is a one-of-a-kind event. The difference stems from the group of students you work with, the education system they come from, age difference, study focus. In some place participants worked more independently, in other there was more coaching from their instructor involved.

Marc: In Brussels for example, there was a large number of experts available and the participants were not only IT students but also came from business and design studies. This changes the dynamic a lot. A second point is that the theme varies because we want the theme to be locally significant which again influences everything.

Jutta: What would you say is the key element tell the participants to watch out for participants?

Marc and Eugene: Sure, here is our advice

  1. Collaboration is absolute key – not everybody knows everything but the knowledge of all people in the team is huge and will make the difference for your project
  2. Use your resources – the experts and the Internet are great resources for you whenever there is a questions
  3. The first idea is not always the best – look beyond the normal horizons and do not let your predefined thinking parameters limit your creativity

Be open to try a disruptive approach and follow hints from advisers and experts fostering thinking outside the box.
