CYBERJAYA, 2 August, 2017 — With the Internet of Things (IoT) building momentum around the world, Asian developers and entrepreneurs will gather to gain a fresh perspective on IoT innovation at this year’s Malaysia Developers’ Day. It will take place 11-12 August 2017.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and AT&T are hosting the popular hackathon. It will encourage innovators to harness their creativity, learn new skills and build an innovative IoT app in just 24 hours as part of a diverse team.
This year’s focus is on creating apps that use data analytics to add to developing smart cities or improving healthcare, sustainability or life at home.

“We’re bringing this meaningful event to Malaysia for the fifth year,” said Jake Jennings, executive director, International External Affairs, AT&T. “Developers’ Day is an opportunity for Asian developers and entrepreneurs to hone their skills, meet new people and embrace the power of data analytics. We’re excited to see what happens.”
Teams will get access to the tools and resources they need to quickly build creative apps. These tools include the AT&T M2X IoT development platform and the Inmagine Group’s image library. A coding workshop is planned for 10 August for selected school students. Teams will receive further support on Developers’ Day by tech experts and mentors from AT&T and MCMC.
