Last weekend we hosted
Let’s refresh our memories and take
What we could use was:
- Raspberry Pi
- two sensors connected with it (move and light)
- API which provides needed information to use them
- QR codes placed on rooms and not only 😉
The main problems to solve where:
- checking availability of parking spaces before arriving to office
- reminding teammates that they are Garbage Monster’s (take out the garbage schedule)
- queuing, rating and streaming music to play in the office
- booking conference rooms
- new colleagues on-boarding
We’ve created 3 teams which were leaded by our developers: Ferran, Radek, Piotrek and Wojtek. Many thanks to you guys!
Everybody had about 7 hours and one goal — come up with something fresh! At the same time our goal was to provide fuel (pizza, beer and caffeine).
Let’s see what they came up with.
The Ferran’s Teamhttps://github.com/callstack-io/callstack-hackathon-team-dratwa-wojtek
We’ve decided to solve our problem with taking out the garbage schedule. Using a QR code placed on the trash bin we’ve managed to pull informations about current schedule into the app. Moreover, we used a beacon device to map its id with the current garbage responsible so we can scan and then ping that “Garbage Monster” on Slack.
The Radek’s Teamhttps://github.com/callstack-io/callstack-hackathon-team-radek
We decided to solve more than one problem form list. We’ve prepared streaming music and queuing it using raspberry pi to avoid argues who will be DJ today ;P. Moreover we used beacons which allow you to check where the nearest toilet is. And that was not enough for us — another feature in their app allows you to check if the parking space is free before we will arrive to office — thanks to move sensors connected with raspberry.
The Piotrek’s and Wojtek’s Teamhttps://github.com/callstack-io/callstack-hackathon-team-dratwa-wojtek
Our team also decided to solve garbage problem. We’ve prepared application contains handy calendar using data provided from QR code on trash bin.
Great work everyone!
The only problem was that we had to choose a winner. If it would be possible we would give you all the 1st place but only one team could win.
After very very long consultations we finally agreed that we’ve fallen in love with Ferran’s team idea (even though everyone was
Congrats for the hackathon winners!
Thank you everyone for having such a great time! We hope to see you soon!
