With only 5.4 millions inhabitants, Finland is the home for 10% of startups existing in the world! For a company working with leading technology solutions, this as a huge opportunity for us to learn, and cooperate with these innovative start-ups.
That was also why we recently spent the weekend at Junction — Europe’s largest hackathon just a mile from our office. The event gathered 1,500 developers and designers from Europe and all around the world.
In 48 hours, these developers and designers worked in teams to create applications, solve real life problems with the latest technology you can think of. More than 60 different companies and public partners participated and provided many challenges falling under different themes, known as tracks.
Trimble at Intelligent Building track – 48 hours – 4 amazing projects
Trimble joined the hackathon as a partner in the Intelligent Building track. You can find out more about our challenge from here.
After 48 hours of intensive work, 4 teams submitted their projects to Trimble. We were amazed with what these talented folks came up with in such short period of time. Many projects used our latest technology solutions and newest gadgets as HoloLens, Augmented or Virtual Reality (AR/VR) gears that we brought with us to the hackathon in order to create magical applications.
