Get ready for the Intel EDGEX coding competition!

Worldwide University coding competition.

Intel is looking to the student developer ecosystem across USA, UK, and China to engage with them to grow and develop this insufficient area of EdgeX device connectivity.

Get ready to create great EdgeX applications together with your teammates and win from a US$14,000 prize pool!

Universities from USA, UK, and China will participate in this fantastic event!

What will you learn in this HACKATHON

Build and promote EdgeX as the common open platform unifying edge computing

Enable and encourage the rapidly growing community of IoT solutions providers to create an ecosystem of interoperable plug-and-play components

Provide tools to quickly create EdgeX-based IoT edge solutions

Collaborate with relevant open source projects, standards groups, and industry alliances to ensure consistency and interoperability across the IoT

EdgeX Foundry is an open source, vendor neutral, Edge IoT middleware platform, under the LF Edge umbrella. It collects data from sensors (i.e. “things”) at the Edge and acts as a dual transformation engine sending and receiving data to and from enterprise, cloud, and on-premise applications.

EdgeX coding competition

Whats the challenge

    Develop (1) a new EdgeX device service microservice to interact with smart home devices/appliances via Matter. As a result, the device service must be protocol-based and implement the Matter specification.
    The device service microservice must not already exist in EdgeX and must not be specific to only one particular smart home device.

    Additionally, the new EdgeX device service microservice, also known as “device connector” must meet the minimum required functionality defined by EdgeX.

    Finally, the device connector must be written in the programming language Golang (GO) and the overall solution must incorporate a UI derived from the example UI here to illustrate the device service’s capabilities and functionality.
