As a student in your final year you are at a major crossroad in your life. A brand new professional identity lies ahead. Hack The Future 2016 - powered by Cronos Group - is an experience-driven hackathon in a unique location and the ultimate opportunity for you to get a taste of the inspiring jobs that await you. You are probably also interested to know that prizes include job offers, paid trips and new equipment.
To monitor our precious new colony, we need to set up some ‘watch dogs’ giving us information about temperature, gasses, rain… This should all be viewable on a dashboard on which our lights turn from green to red when some hostile movement is detected. Keep those lights green people!
Keep the 198 humans alive by building a survival monitoring center application capturing and visualizing atmospheric pressure, humidity levels, wind strength, ultraviolet radiation and more mysterious data.

Create an interactive dashboard of potential habitable planets. Each planet should be analyzed to see if it is a potential. The dashboard therefore needs to be user-friendly and understandable to everyday users, to easily identify the best habitable planet.

Contact earth to enable the kill switch and deactivate the nanobots. We are looking for PowerShell coding masters to make their way through international space relay stations running on Microsoft Cloud Systems. Search and decipher the intel to make a connection to Earth before time runs out! Are you the Chosen One?

The main computer core that controls 12 Mars Rovers has broken down. Fortunately, the communication infrastructure is still intact. Using the API of our comlink, we can restore the connection to the Rovers to get their whereabouts and sensory data. The station commander has requested you to make a visual dashboard that aggregates all these data.
Aliens do not want to colonize us, they just want human’s going back to earth and protect their territory. Automate the security fence of connected cameras an computer vision by a platform able to detect your own spoken commando’s.

Great progress was made in the colony last years, until communication suddenly stopped on November, 24. One week later a strange binary signal on a low frequency channel appeared. Help decoding the Alien plans, you might be Earth’s only chance of survival.
Afraid of alien attacks and handicapt by a limited bandwidth between Mars and Earth, all data traffic should be compressed and secured by encryption. Most important is of course that one picture with possible evacuation spots on Mars. Build an application to send these messages and decode them in Outlook Online.

As part of the Mobile Research Team you are appointed to create a secured app where pictures, parameters, video’s can be logged during tough conditions. Do you have what it takes to save mankind?

Red dust storms are not only reducing visibility to zero, also solar energy, the largest energy supply on Mars, decreases to insufficient amounts. Therefore, a set of 24 air born drones are developed to measure real-time changes in Mars’ atmosphere to predict future dust storms. Develop a solid and fast REST API to receive and process all data and manufacture a dashboard to show your predictions to keep energy levels back balanced.

A colony 57.6 million km away is always a dangerous thing. It’s up to you to optimize the defense systems on Mars! The system should be able to detect invaders, visualize them on a security dashboard hoisted by SAP HANA Cloud Platform and control drones to beat the @#*”&! out of them, once they try to invade.

One of the space crafts - transporting billions of disease-srpeading nanobots - crashed during a pre-inspection flight. Your mission is to fearlessly enter the ship, bring it back to life and use wire taps to capture and make sense of all emitted data streams. Reverse engineering those data streams will gradually reveal the nanobots audio-encoded DNA which will give you the power to keep our colony safe and sane.
