"Each year our cities connect us. Whether that’s through transportation, communications, events or information, our cities act as bridges between us. Cities serve as the platform for interaction, collaboration and innovation. They also represent tremendous opportunities for advancement and new ideas to make us more connected, safer and positioned for global growth and environmental sustainability.
The 2016 Black & Veatch Hackathon project will be centered on these connected, Smart Cities.
While the project details won’t be revealed until the day of the event, please begin to be prepared by exploring Smart City technologies and ideas as well as begin thinking about what might be used to create a better world for all of its inhabitants."
