2016 AT&T Summit Winners – 300K worth of award winning ideas
Updated, January 12, 2016: Grand prize winner announced.
At this year’s hackathon, we had more than 40 prizes that combined for over $300,000 in cash and prizes. Even if a team didn’t make it to the presentation round, there were still plenty of challenges and Kicker contests they could win. The teams didn’t disappoint, they created innovative solutions to challenges that involved tackling issues such as sustainability, education, and the future of smart cities.
Some of the winning teams were groups of people who had known each other for years, while others had met less than 48 hours ago. There were teams that were a family affair, while others had driven all night just to make it to the event. All of the teams had interesting stories of how they knew each other and why they were tackling the challenge they had chosen. Stay tuned in the coming months to learn more about their stories on this blog.
Prior to the event, teams had one challenge they could tackle before arriving in Las Vegas. Developers could test their app using ARO and submit their findings to the ARO Challenge. The entry with the most efficient app measured by ARO won $5,000. Join us in congratulating the developers of NASA News and all our hackathon winners.
