UPDATE: Virtual Winners Announced!
Thank you to all the Space Apps virtual participants for amazing efforts to address challenges on Earth and in space during the Space Apps Challenge weekend! You worked together and independently around the world and collectively you submitted 120 diverse projects for judging at the end of the Space Apps weekend.
The NASA judging team has spent the past week carefully reviewing all the submitted projects. All your descriptions were carefully read, your code was reviewed and your videos were watched! The following two projects were selected to move onto judging at the global level:
In addition, one project was selected to be included in first round of judging in the People's Choice category:
We saw great innovation in numerous projects submitted as part of the virtual category. Our congratulations to everyone who participated throughout the weekend on incredible work!
How can you participate in the Space Apps Virtual Event?
You don't have to be at a local event to participate in Space Apps… you just need a computer, an Internet connection and a desire to collaborate with others to build applications. This intense 48 hour weekend is for developers, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs – anyone who is a space and science enthusiast. You will connect online with global dispatch to find a team that needs your specific skills and expertise to help solve a challenge. All from the comfort of your own home.
Now, when we say 48 hours, that is the time that we expect you to commit in your own time zone. Of course, it's more complicated than that globally, and since you are participating virtually, here's some cool information:
What can you do?
- Create your own team and form a global team to solve a challenge!
- Find a challenge you want to work on and locate a team that needs your skills (that team may even be at your wait listed location)!
- Find a challenge you want to solve yourself and do it!
- Find a challenge that you and your friends or co-workers are excited about and solve it!
- Some other means of working that I haven't thought of!
How to get involved
- Become a ViP (a Virtual Participant). Register by clicking that green button on the top right-hand side of this page, just over the header image.
- Review the challenges. The sooner you figure out what you want to do, the more time you have to meet awesome people and make awesome projects.
- Want to start a new team? 1) Make it official by creating a Project. 2) add your info into the Matchmaking section on the Hackpad of your chosen Challenge page. 3) Build your team - invite friends, tweet about it, check the Matchmaking section for people that want to work with you.
- Want to find a team to join? 1) Add your information into the Matchmaking! section of the Hackpad of your chosen Challenge page. 2) Search the Matchmaking!! section for teams that are looking for you.
- Team communication. Each team will create its own means of communication (if you're starting a team, you'll want to figure this out). We've found that this works a lot better than trying to force everyone to do it the same way.
Finally, don't forget to have the number (or url) for your favorite food delivery place handy so you can keep your energy level up all through the night!!
IBM Bluemix for your virtual Space Apps hacking!
IBM is generously offering the use of their Bluemix platform to all Space Apps virtual participants, as well as a chance to win the "Best of Bluemix" prize for your project created at Space Apps! Check out the details below and give it a try:
- IBM is offering a free Bluemix trial to all Space App Challenge virtual participants to use during the hackathon event. In addition, participants will receive an exclusive offer extending the normal 30-day Bluemix trial to a 60-day Bluemix trial so you can continue using it after Space Apps is over!
- IBM will also offer virtual Bluemix support throughout the hackathon for anybody who has questions or needs some help getting acquainted with the platform. You will be able to access that support through http://ibm.biz/spaceapp2015 throughout the event weekend.
- IBM will award one project from the virtual event the 'Best of Bluemix' prize for the most innovation use of Bluemix. The winning team will receive $12K of Cloud credit and if they are a qualified startup, they will be granted up to $120K of Cloud credit in addition to up to 60 hours of technical support and assistance over 6 months by an senior IBM Bluemix developer. NOTE: Teams who want to be considered for the Best of Bluemix prize, should submit their hack and Space Apps project page at http://ibm.biz/spaceapp2015 in order to be considered.
Give it a try and let us know how Bluemix supports your hacking during the Space Apps weekend!
Questions on the Virtual event?
If you need anything, we will be adding to the FAQ below as the questions roll in - check there first. If that fails:
- You can comment at the bottom of this page
- tweet us @spaceapps
- Join the #spaceapps chat channel on IRC. Aren't familiar with IRC? Head to webchat.freenode.net and type in your nickname and #spaceapps as the channel you want to join.
- Email us at [email protected]!
If you have questions regarding specific challenges, you can email them to the NASA challenge owners. Email addresses are on each challenge page.
Need help finding data? Need someone to talk about your project idea with?
NASA data scientist Jeanne Holm will be tuning in throughout the Space Apps weekend to support people who need support finding datasets, to answer questions, and to be a sounding board if you just want to do a bit of brainstorming! You can reach Jeanne through the following channels:Twitter: @JeanneHolmSkype: NASA_JeanneLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeanneholmTumblr: Science Data GeekStack Exchange: Open Data Stack ExchangeGithub: https://github.com/JeanneHolm
Need support navigating data.nasa.gov?You can get assistance with data.nasa.gov via the Socrata developer support IRC channel (http://dev.socrata.com/irc.html) and using the "soda" and "socrata" tags on Stack Overflow (detailed in http://dev.socrata.com/support.html). In addition all of the developer support resources for data.nasa.gov are also centralized at http://dev.socrata.com and there attendees can find additional documentation, code samples, and libraries for use with the Socrata APIs.
Do I HAVE to work with a team?
Of course not - this all about empowering you to work at your best. If you want to work alone or with your pre-established team, do it! We're just trying to make it super easy to connect with other people because you never know what will happen.
