Students for a Smarter Planet is supporting Berkeley in running their hackathon at the Energy Institute at Haas / Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative.
Entrants build software-based business solutions and open-source code for energy and resource challenges. Around 75 attendees (from computer science, information science, engineering, business, energy & resources, and other departments) will compete over the course of a weekend to build apps under two themes: 1) Water: Solving California’s Water Crisis and 2) Energy: Revolutionizing Building Energy Efficiency. Last year’s hackathon resulted in two software-based business solutions, WattTime and Thermostatly. Additionally, we will have an open-source coding track, to build open-source data collection standards for smart meter data. See more at http://berkeley.cleanweb.co
