The M2M App Challenge

Part of the Connected World Conference in Santa Clara:

The U.S. Dept. of Energy will be on hand to provide access to sets of open government data and work with you on the data. We will be offering you the choice of five different development platforms. The challenge is to create an app that help the environment or improve healthcare or maybe even public safety ... the idea is to make the world a better, greener place!

We are calling all coders, developers, and anyone with a creative mind to take part in the second annual M2M App Challenge, where we give you the opportunity to work with open data sets from the U.S. Dept. of Energy to create next-generation M2M apps!

The M2M App Challenge, June 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, encourages participants to develop next-generation apps focused in the areas of automotive, healthcare, energy, and more.
