Held at medical device systems design firm Minnetronix in St. Paul, co-organizer Justin Grammens explains that the event is an extension of the Arduino.MN hack days with a broader and more competitive spirit.

“The goal is to come in as one thing and leave as another,” he says.  “It’s about showing creativity and progress during the 12 hour (8am – 8pm) window.”

Participants can bring their own team to the event or plan to join one; all ages and experience levels are welcome.  Grammens notes that the whole notion of IoT Hack Day itself is experimental in nature saying, “We designed it to bring people together from around the local IoT landscape.”
