This year’s hackathon competition promises to be especially thrilling, featuring cutting-edge technologies such as Machine Learning (ML) and the newly-released Python Bindings for MoveIt. With generous sponsorship from Elephant Robotics and PickNik Robotics, the event will offer fantastic prizes for participants.

The first prize is an Elephant Robotics 6DOF robot arm, second prize is a Valve Steam Deck, and third prize is an Intel RealSense camera! Plus, all participants will receive a free WMD2023 t-shirt.

Replying to this post to bump this. If Python and/or ML things sound like fun to hack on please sign up and attend.

Can I come and watch the competition?
The sign up seems is only for competition participants.

Of course, please come and sign up. The competition thing is meant to make the event more fun, not be some sort of overly official thing.

This is a hackathon, not prepared projects, so how long does it take that day? Also, are there any skill requirements to being in the competition?
