2017 Sydney Hackathon

Motorola Solutions

Date: 13th September 2017  — 15th September 2017

Taking place in Sydney from 13-15 September, the 2017 Motorola Solutions Hackathon is a fast-paced, 48-hour challenge with the goal of developing apps to help Australia’s public safety agencies have better access to information where and when they need it most.

Applying the principals of agile development, Motorola Solutions’ hackathons enable app developers and government and public safety agencies to work together to develop new technologies.

Developer teams will work together to create solutions that harness and share critical information with and between public safety agencies, first responders and the community.

Platforms created by developers will be their own IP, and they will be free to develop them further after the hackathon, with support from Motorola Solutions if they wish.

NSW Telco Authority, NSW State Emergency Services and the NSW Department of Environment and Heritage are among government and public safety agencies participating in the event.

Motorola Solutions is actively calling for more software developers to join the event. Interested parties should email Kym Little: kym.little@motorolasolutions.com or call +61 4 2213 6008.
