This week Intel® is unveiling new software and hardware at the Intel® Developer Forum in San Francisco. Part of these updates includes new features to their Galileo Gen 2 Development Board. Austin is lucky enough to be the first city to experience these updated Dev Kits first hand. Intel® is kicking off their IoT Roadshow in Austin Sept. 20 and will be handing out free Galileo boards to the first 100 attendees who have registered for the event.
This developer kit comes packed with tools based on Intel® architecture and designed to be hardware and software pin compatible with Arduino. Plus it includes lots of cool sensors, software and accessories to stimulate your creativity. Don’t worry because there will be a workshop to teach you how the software and tools in the board works.
After the workshop, ideas will flow, teams will form and then the hacking begins! Build, create and tinker till the wee hours. On top of that there will be several challenges so you can leave with the Intel Basis watch.
Free food, drinks and a reception to wrap up all the fun at the end! Got a startup looking for new tools? Need a team building exercise? Bring them along and dominate the hackathon. You can work alone or in a team.
On top of the free dev kits, one first place winner will land a $1,500 Amazon gift card, two second place winners get $1,000 gift cards each, and three third place winners will get $500 gift cards each. The chances aren’t too bad, right?
Judges will be among some of the most influential in Austin’s tech scene. All the fun is happening at the TechShop (120 Sundance Pkw #350 Round Rock, TX 78681) Sept 20 at 9am!
Make sure to register before space runs out! Get ready to hack the next big thing. Good luck!”
