The last 30 hours or so has been a fun ride for the PeopleSpace team. We hosted our third hackathon, App-o-Motive, to drive the creation of apps to help power the world’s connected cars.
We had a great turnout for the 30 hour event. After prepping with breakfast provided by TractionLabs, Orbee’s CEO Daniel Kim kicked off the event and detailed our special challenge from SpringBoard Auto.
As the teams got to work, it was a great experience for us to see the entire first level of PeopleSpace filled with programmers and creatives working on awesome new concepts. At 4pm, our mentorship team of Laura Knight, Ben Walters, Chad Marciniak, Marvin Chan, and Chris Prijic showed up to work with teams and help polish the ideas that they’d spent all morning working on.
Things really got exciting Sunday morning as the teams presented their work to the judges. The teams created some great ideas focused on solving driving issues with final projects entered ranging from keeping kids safe to helping drivers hook up on the go.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at our winners! Parking Update took first place and CarMon was Runner-up! Take a look at their projects here: http://buff.ly/1JbyPfJ
Within the hackathon, SpringBoardAuto sponsored their own challenge and prize.
