Turn your idea into a product demo. Join the hackathon with hundreds of developers. Get your hands on +50 000€ in prizes. This bootcamp is aimed to help you get a fast-start to Slush Hacks, so you can be better prepared, learn the tech and get feedback on your ideas.

The training is free for all. All attendees should bring their own development machine, equipped with their preferred development environments and the appropriate Azure SDK downloadable from http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/

This technical training will focus on the Ultrahack HUS-challenge and the Azure Cloud Challenge, through which you can win additional 10 000€. 

There are thousands of children visiting the Children’s Hospital every year. Some children have short visits and some longer visits to the hospital. Our goal is to make sure that each child spends only the necessary time at the hospital facilities and their stay is as enjoyable as possible.

How does the cloud play into this? We carry various devices with us every day, like phones, smart watches and various gadgets. What if we could combine the data these devices collect with the data that the hospital has, to understand how the kid is behaving outside of the hospital? Our phones can track our movement; the Xbox One Kinect sensor is able to track the kids heart rate as they play the game or do the rehabilitation exercise. With the Azure Stream Analytics and Machine Learning you could collect data from various devices to one place and analyze that date to, for example, predict a seizure. Check out this Coding4Fun project to see how can you track heartrate with Kinect.
