EdgeX Foundry Ideation Challenge

March 21, 2020 - April 15, 2020

Please join us for the EdgeX Foundry Ideation Challenge in partnership with Topcoder! We invite all community members to register for the virtual challenge and tell us how you would use EdgeX Foundry to solve a business problem.

The EdgeX framework allows IoT devices using different protocols or standards to interoperate by normalizing communication protocols, making it available on the cloud or at an enterprise level. It also allows developers to perform complex operations, through the use of sensor fusion using rules engines (such as Edge Analytics).

With Edge Computing becoming commonplace, and with the proliferation of IoT edge devices, by the end of February 2020, EdgeX Foundry ™ had surpassed 3 million downloads. EdgeX Foundry ™ is built using several technologies and languages, with a majority of the services written in Go and C.

Registration is open from March 21 to April 15. Submissions are due by April 16 and winners will be announced on April 19.

Ideation Challenge Rules

This challenge will last 14 days after submission is open. For the first 7 days, members can submit their initial ideas for a Checkpoint review, that will happen 7 days after submission is open. This is an informal review that will be sent directly to the member.

Best 5 submissions will win $50 each in the checkpoint. Checkpoint submission will end on April 9, 2020 12:00 UTC -4. At the end of the 14 days submission period, we will have the final review. Even if you don’t submit for the checkpoint review, you can still submit for the final review.
