Calling all techies!

27th October 2015

We are excited to announce that we are the global partner for the biggest beacon hackathon to date! BeaconValley started as a project to beaconise Kontakt.io’s hometown Krakow, Poland and to turn it into a smart city. This year it has expanded to a 24 hour worldwide hackathon to run at the same time across the UK, USA, Poland and Mexico.

Beacons will connect four cities

The BeaconValley Global Hackathon will kick off on November 21st in Krakow, New York, London, and Guadalajara simultaneously. For 24 hours, we’re inviting teams to come together and use our TapPoint® proximity technology for free to make a difference to your city! Powered by Kontakt.io beacons, we’ll be setting a global challenge for you to work on across culture, health, commerce and transportation.

So, we are calling all developers, graphic designers, project managers, and genuine technology enthusiasts to put your skills to the test and create your very own smart city proximity powered mobile application, by taking part in this exciting global hackathon.

If you’ve got a great idea for a beacon-enabled app that will transform people’s lives, but you don’t have access to the technology, or you don’t know where to start, then what are you waiting for? Save your spot now!
