The AEC Hackathon is using open source and open standard technologies to develop the AEC Hackathon’s software solutions. Cloud-based solutions are encouraged for all categories. Some data sets and API’s (REST, REST3D, etc.) will be distributed before the event for all registered attendees to enable them to become familiar with the technologies and prepare for the Hackathon. Technologies that are being encouraged include 3D Gaming, BIM, XML, iOS, Android, HTML5/javascript among others.

The AEC Hackathon will post the six categories that will generate thoughts, ideas and paths forward before the event on the web site, Facebook and LinkedIn. There will be one overview presentation during the AEC Mixer on the Friday night before the Hack with six workshops held during the Saturday of the Hackathon to enable teams to “learn on the fly” and benchmark their designs against industry examples. The six workshops / categories which will have awards include:

  • Digital Fabrication

  • BIM 2.0
  • Digital Worlds/Smart Cities
