Successful Hackathon boosts System Integration

Precise integration of single parts is of paramount importance for the overall performance of the entire SIMPLI-CITY system. Thus, at the beginning of August, after months of work, some of the consortium’s techiest members had the opportunity to put some pieces of the SIMPLI-CITY system together.

A lot has been achieved at this Hackathon in the sunny Cullera, in the south of Valencia, bathed by the Mediterranean Sea:

·         Philipp Hoenisch (TU Vienna) and Kristof Kipp (Ascora) took care of the integration of the Service Marketplace with the Service Runtime Environment and its Service Registry part. The Service Marketplace is now able to get access to all available SIMPLI-CITY services, search for specific services (by keywords, titles or descriptions) and create licenses for services usage.

·         Alfonso Marin (Atos) and Jose Navalon (TIE Kinetix) successfully integrated the Context Database component with the Context Manager (through a Publisher-Subscriber middleware provided by TIE), so now the information from the sensors can be seamlessly stored in the cloud.

·         Rostyslav Zabolotnyi (TU Vienna), Richard Meister and Daniel Burgstahler (TU Darmstadt) worked on integrating the User Management web API with the actual users database.

·         And last but not least, Jan Reehuis (Ascora) together with Arturo Brotons (TIE Kinetix) integrated the Application Design Studio with the core of the Personal Mobility Assistant allowing SIMPLI-CITY app developers to deploy their projects directly into the PMA.

Overall, the Hackathon was a success, the major integration decisions were made and important parts implemented directly. The partners returned back home and will continue working in the usual rhythm. However, since this Hackathon was so productive, another Hackathon may be organised next year.
