Many of you will remember the first edition of the Open IoT Challenge, since a team of RIOT developers arrived in third place  during the first edition, with the watr.li project! We are back for a second edition, with even bigger prizes this time ($3,000 for the winning team anyone? :-)), so I hope to see several projects based on RIOT among the participants.
You can find all the details regarding the challenge at http://iot.eclipse.org/open-iot-challenge. Just like before, the first step is to share with us your project idea, and for that you have until next Monday, Nov 23. A short list of up to 15 proposals will be awarded $150 to help buy the hardware needed for your project. After this date, you will have about 3 months to build your project since the deadline to finalize your project is February 26 next year.
Please let me know if you have any questions! Benjamin –
