  • II place

  • Veturilo Finder
  • Authors: Wojciech Kieliszek, Bartosz Cieślak, Mateusz Nalewajski
  • Znamy zwycięzców Konkursu OpenApiHackathon

    Dwa pomysły znalazły największe uznanie wśród Jury:

    Jury najwyżej oceniło rozwiązanie Green Your Office with Orange – opracowane przez Piotra Miedzika lidera zespołu i Michała Cieszko.

    Rozwiązanie przygotowane przez dwóch developerów jest warstwą aplikacyjną wykorzystującą szereg różnych funkcji komunikacyjnych udostępnionych przez operatorów telekomunikacyjnych, a także funkcje dostępne w otwartym Internecie.
    Na szczególną uwagę zasługuje synergia funkcji telekomunikacyjnych, informatycznych, energetycznych oraz komplementarność rozwiązania. Twórcy zwrócili uwagę również na aspekt ekologiczny a warstwa sterująca usługami może być wykorzystana np. do zarządzania inteligentnym środowiskiem domowym. Modułowość pozwala na ciągły redevelopment aplikacji celem uatrakcyjnienia go oraz dopasowywania produktu do kolejnych zastosowań.

    Drugim bardzo wysoko ocenionym prototypem jest Veturilo Finder – opracowany przez Wojciecha Kieliszka - lidera zespołu, Bartosza Cieślaka i Mateusza Nalewajskiego.

    Aplikacja Znajdź Veturilo! to rozwiązanie na telefon komórkowy, które umożliwia wyświetlanie wszystkich stacji rowerów miejskich sieci VETURILO we wskazanym obszarze mapy. Dzięki aplikacji użytkownik może znaleźć stacje w pobliżu siebie, po pobraniu jego położenia geograficznego poprzez moduł GPS telefonu. Aplikacja wskazuje też jak dotrzeć do najbliższej stacji.
    Aplikacja odpowiada na zapotrzebowanie rynku gdzie dotychczas nie ma rozwiązania dla Windows Phone.

    Nagrody otrzymają:

    Piotr Miedzik Lider – wyjazd na konferencję Oracle OpenWorld & JavaOne 2013 w San Francisco
    Michał Cieszko – praktyka w Orange Labs

    Wojciech Kieliszek Lider - praktyka w Orange Labs Bartosz Cieślak - praktyka w Orange Labs Mateusz Nalewajski - praktyka w Orange Labs

    Obrady Jury trwały kilka dni – wiele z pomysłów jest na tyle zaawansowanych, że wymagały dodatkowej specjalistycznej analizy.
    Ostatecznie do zamknięcia drugiego etapu konkursu wpłynęło 40 bardziej lub mniej skończonych projektów, w tym kilka gotowych do wdrożenia rozwiązań.

    Wszystkim uczestnikom bardzo dziękujemy za udział w inicjatywie. Organizatorzy, w uznaniu za zaangażowanie w inicjatywę, przygotują dyplomy dla autorów prototypów.

    Liczymy, że dostęp do Telco API i danych Miasta Stołecznego Warszawa pozwolił Wam na otwarcie umysłów na nowe innowacyjne rozwiązania z użyciem API telekomunikacyjnych oraz otwartych danych Miasta Stołecznego Warszawa.

    Wiele z tych , które otrzymaliśmy już dziś, jest na bardzo zaawansowanym poziomie i mogą stanowić zalążek do własnego biznesu.

    IQ Partners nasz partner inwestycyjny bada potencjał kilkunastu zgłoszonych rozwiązań i wkrótce rozpocznie rozmowy z wybrańcami.

    Wkrótce powiadomimy o gali na której uroczyście wręczymy nagrody zwycięzcom.

    Gratulujemy zwycięzcom i dziękujemy wszystkim uczestnikom konkursu w imieniu Orange Labs Poland, Miasta Stołecznego Warszawa, Oracle Communication i IQ Partners

    We know winners of OpenApiHackathon

    Two ideas were most appreciated by the jury:

    Top rated solution by Jury is Green Your Office with Orange - developed by Piotr Miedzik - team leader and Michał Cieszko.

    The solution prepared by the two developers is an application layer using a number of different communication functions, including both functions exposed by telecom operators and publicly available in the internet. The synergy and complementarity of telecom, IT and power management functions is particularly interesting. The authors paid attention also to ecological aspect of the solution. In particular, its control layer can be used, among other purposes, to manage smart home environments. The modularity of the solution enables its constant development in order to increase its usability and address the needs of further applications.

    Second highly graded prototype is Veturilo Finder – developed by Wojciech Kieliszek - team leader, Bartosz Cieślak and Mateusz Nalewajski.

    The application displays on a map the location of all Veturilo city bike stations in a requested region. It is possible to find the stations close to a user based on his/her location determined with GPS services. The application shows also the way to the closest Veturilo station. Finally, the application addresses market demand for Windows Phone application for Veturilo users. Such an application was not available until now.

    Prizes will be awarded:

    Piotr Miedzik Leader- trip to the conference Oracle OpenWorld & JavaOne 2013 in San Francisco
    Michał Cieszko - practice at Orange Labs

    Wojciech Kieliszek Leader - practice in Orange Labs
    Bartosz Cieslak - practice at Orange Labs
    Mateusz Nalewajski - practice at Orange Labs

    Jury deliberations lasted a few days - many of the ideas are so much advanced that required additional special analysis. Finally, on the end of the second stage of the competition we received 40 more or less finished projects including a number of ready-to-implement solutions.

    Thank all the participants taking part in the initiative.
    The organizers, appreciating participants commitment to the initiative, will prepare diplomas for authors of prototypes.
    We believe that access to the Telco API and Open Data City of Warsaw has allowed you to open minds to new and innovative solutions.
    Many of these we received today are very advanced and can be beginning for a business.

    IQ Partners is researching the potential of over a dozen submitted solutions and will soon start talks with the chosen ones.

    We will inform you about award ceremony soon..

    Congratulations to the winners and thank for all participants of the competition on behalf of the Orange Labs Poland, the Capital City of Warsaw, Oracle Communication and IQ Partners

    Many developers not only from Poland but also from other European countries deliver their ideas. The majority of individual participants and teams, prepared nearly 40 prototypes, after qualifying for the second stage.

    Submitted works can be divided into three types: ready to deploy applications, prototypes as a demo of services and source code to implement in the IT environment.

    All solutions are currently evaluated by the Jury. We have to wait for the results until beginning of July.

    Then we will know who will go to San Francisco, to take a part in the international conference Oracle OpenWorld & JavaOne 2013, who will be invited to have practices in Orange Labs Poland
