Take part in Europe’s largest IoT hackathon

The very first Bosch ConnectedExperience (BCX) took place in Berlin four years ago. Every year since then, BCX drew on hundreds of participants from more than 45 countries to join this Internet of Things (IoT) hackathon. This three-day event has become unmissable for the community of developers, product owners, product managers, UX experts, entrepreneurs, and innovators.

And we’re going to the next round! BCX20 takes place from February 17–20, 2020 at one of the coolest locations in Europe, STATION-Berlin. Participants will have 30 hours to team up and tackle several exciting hack challenges, using over 135 connectable devices – including cars, eBikes, robots, smart home appliances, cameras, power tools, production machines, sensors, and whole lot more – made available by Bosch and its ecosystem partners. They will also have access to a large range of hardware and software products to create prototypes, as well as an environment in which to explore advanced methods in UX, design thinking, and business modelling.

But above all, BCX is about having fun! It is an opportunity to learn, test your coding skills, make new friends from all four corners of the globe, and maybe even develop entirely novel solutions.

Recaping BCX19

In 2019, more than 700 developers competed in five separate hack challenges, focusing on themes as diverse as Mobility, Manufacturing, Buildings, Utility Cross Domain and Social Impact. Bosch was supported in this venture with Hackathon Partners such as HERE, Mathworks, Microsoft, Red Hat and many more. After 30 hours of intensive work, the teams pitched their ideas in front of the hackathon community and later in front of a jury of experts. The winning teams were also presented to the wider audience of the Bosch ConnectedWorld conference, which started on the last day of the BCX event.
