Open data and imagination helped five teams of app developers take home top prizes in the second annual M2M App Challenge, which took place June 7-9 in Santa Clara, Calif.
Kicked off with a rousing primer from a representative of the U.S. Dept. of Energy on open data sets being made available by the U.S. government, the event drew developers and coders from across the country. All had the intention to make the world a greener, safer, more efficient place—but only a handful took home the top prize, as determined by an independent panel of judges.

With support of the U.S. Dept. of Energy, Lit San Leandro, and the City of Santa Clara, the M2M App Challenge delivered 36 hours of innovation. Participants chose to work on one of (or a combination of) five different platforms from platform partners OSIsoft, Aeris Communications, Esri, ILS Technology, and ioBridge.
