Europe’s largest IoT hackathon

Take part in Europe’s largest IoT hackathon

Every year BCX, taking place in Berlin, Germany, draws 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.

BCX20 took place from February 17–19, 2020 at one of the coolest locations in Europe, STATION-Berlin. Participants had 30 hours to team up and tackle several exciting 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.

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