DPRG’s own Hackathon team of Jain Shi, David Ackley, Omar Barlas, and Carl Ott have successfully advanced to the next tier of the AT&T IoT Hackathon. They are one of four teams in the nation to be invited to compete in the Mechatronics challenge at the AT&T Developers Conference in Las Vegas held in early January. With their selection, AT&T has provided help with airfare and travel expenses for two members of the team. The whole team plans to go to Las Vegas and they are sharing the cost. If they place in the top three teams, they would win a nice cash prize. Wish them luck!
The team will be discussing the Hackathon experience and their project at the December 10th, 2016 DPRG monthly meeting.
