Build an app to read sensor data and predict failure using Informix TimeSeries service
Preventing problems costs less than reacting to them. Prevention implies some knowledge of where things are going, and predicting where things will be in the future requires some knowledge of where things have been in the past. This is where IBM Informix TimeSeries comes into play. Not only does it provide a means of recording what has happened, it is easy to use to predict what might happen. In an internet-of-things context, any sensor can record its information into a time series data set. This demonstration is a simple simulation of a refrigerator, cloud-based storage and analytics, and monitoring software to alert the user if the device is approaching unsafe temperature limits.

Jump-start your hackathon efforts with DevOps Services and Bluemix
A hackathon is typically a brief, intense period of collaborative development generally around a particular cause or topic. The idea is to get something done quickly and, of course, for the thing you to do totally rock the judges. Given the short time period, it can be challenging to build in some basic features like Facebook authentication or sending emails or texts while still making significant progress on your main goal. The Hackathon Starter Project by Sahat Yalkabov, et. al., hosted at GitHub, provides a great collection of capabilities to use as the base for your hackathon efforts. IBM's DevOps Services provides a collaborative on-the-web development environment and continuous delivery pipeline while IBM Bluemix provides the cloud hosting you need to run it, making this a perfect pair for hackathon success. I explain how to stand up your own copy of Hackathon Starter from a fresh version of the source using DevOps Services and automatically deploy it after every change to the Bluemix PaaS.
