Carrefour Delighting Customers Challenge Basket Data
The goal of the challenge is to design and develop a prototype app for mobile or the web that improves consumer experience. To help you achieve this goal we put at your disposal thousands of tickets with anonymized information (https://github.com/ging/carrefour_basket_data_challenge). Create apps using the information provided and online sources like social media, geolocation, weather data, blogs, forums, and all kinds of websites to take our customer’s shopping experience to a new level. Develop shopping assistants, food specialist apps that count calories and help make healthier choices, find new applications to virtual reality, predict the clients next necessity or create something totally different.
Cisco Spark makes it easy for teams to stay in sync, as conversations flow seamlessly between messages, video calls and real-time whiteboarding sessions. All this taking place in virtual meeting rooms that live for a few hours while others become permanent fixtures of your team’s workflow with titles like “Daily Standup”, “Build Status” or “TADHack-mini London where awesome WebRTC code gets written!”
The initial set of Spark APIs is primarily about room management and getting content in and out of Spark: create rooms, invite people, search for people, post message, get messages history, and be notified in real-time as new messages are posted by others…

hSenid Mobile has been in the forefront of digital service enablement for the past two decades, focusing on building and nurturing a vibrant developer ecosystem. Our Telco Application Platform (TAP) enables service and app creation by incorporating core telco network assets to monetize on. Developers can rapidly build scalable value added services with Messaging, USSD, Location based Services, IoT, Billing and In-App APIs.

In previous TADHacks we have seen hacks that extend Matrix to existing services such as SIP/IMS, real-time translation of text messages, chatting via sign language, and even making a robot dance the Macarena with commands sent through Matrix!
The Matrix team is available to discuss ideas or answer questions in the Matrix TADHack room – please come and chat!
The conventional telecommunication industry is attacked and deprived of their central role in the world of communication now for years. But while new players are constantly stepping into the market, more and more communication silos are build. The services hardly “talk” to each other. Furthermore the digitization of nearly every object called the Internet of Things (IoT) which will interfere with everybody’s live especially in smart cities, will address new and even more user scenarios but also challenges regarding usability, safety, security, privacy and so forth.
reTHINK project is driven by some major European telecommunication players (Eurescom, Orange, DT, Altice, Fraunhofer FOKUS, APIZEE, Institut Mines-Telecom, INESC-ID, Quobis, Technische Universität Berlin) and tackles these upcoming questions with a radical transformation of the communication market, where classical distribution of roles will be turned upside down – not only for Telcos but also for Web Players!
The reTHINK project is releasing as Open Source (Apache 2.0) a decentralised communication infrastructure to make network services faster, more effective, more trustful, fully programmable and inherently inter-operable. Only data formats are required to be standardised to ensure interoperability. No standards are needed for network protocols or for APIs, radically reducing standardisation efforts. Ultimately, reTHINK framework is an alternative to current dominant walled garden communication networks that prevent newcomers from entering in the market and, at the same time, empowers the users with the choice and the management of their private data and identities.
The reTHINK Framework provides the tools to build a global decentralised network of Hyperlinked Entities (hyperties) that are executed at the edge and trustfully communicates each other.
Developers are all invited to join our community (https://rethink-project.slack.com, contact email@example.com to request access), experiment our demos and build on top of it new Hyperties and / or Applications:
– Quick start to develop Hyperties
– Hello World Application
– Complete Specification of the Framework

We have a nice challenge for you. Redefine networking or IoT in the home or enterprise. We have prepared some machines on which you can put apps, or to be more precise snaps. Think about your mobile phone and the one of your neighbour. They are physically the same but because you choose a certain set of apps and they choose another one, your phone can call a car, rent a car, reserve a plane, control your lights in your home, put a movie on the TV, etc. This same functionality you now have for any type of devices, e.g. robots, drones, fridges, projectors, wifi routers, set top boxes, NAS, etc. Thanks to a new open source standard [Snaps] and an open source tool [snapcraft] you can easily make apps for any device.
In order for you to get started you need to make a snapcraft.yaml and run snapcraft. Here you can find information on doing just this. You want to run the snap in devmode [sudo snap install snapname_0.1_amd64.snap –dangerous –devmode] so you can develop fast and are not restricted. If you want to upload the snap to the store and in the future sell snaps, you need to confine it [strict instead of devmode] and use interface plugs. However for this Hackathon it is perfectly fine not to bother with this.
Ideas for cool snaps:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org (password: Hackathon)
ssh email@example.com (password: Hackathon)
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org (password: Hackathon)
ssh email@example.com (password: Hackathon)
Copy snap to the box: scp your.snap tadhackuser@….rapidklout.com:/home/tadhackuser (nextcloud, cpe1, cpe2 or cpe3, password: Hackathon)
Login with ssh and do: sudo snap install your.snap –devmode –dangerous
See the logs: sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog
