- Details about the special invite: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxzNs-HspAzYS2w5bHFwX0hnVFk/view?usp=sharing
- Duration: Monday 20 March 2017 at 6pm – Tuesday 21 March at 5pm (23 hours)
- The 2017 theme is IIoT: Asset Health Monitoring, Predictive Analytics, and Maintenance Optimization of industrial mobile assets. OSIsoft has partnered with one of the largest mining companies in the world, Barrick Gold Corporation, to provide you with real assets and data from their gold mining sites to work with. You will be presented with an environment comprised of real assets and data. Using PI System components and our developer technologies think outside the box and see how you can bring the Power of Data to consumers and businesses. You will work together as part of a group to develop and implement your ideas. Use all of your PI System, data, and innovative skills while learning from others. At the end, your application will be judged by a group of experts. The top applications will be awarded prizes, and you and your team will be publicly recognized for the achievement.
- If you are interested to participate, please send an email to email@example.com before Friday 17 March 2017 at 9pm.
