Austin 50th Anniversary
September 6th - 21st
The TJBot BLUE|Xp for Austin@50 is part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations of IBM Austin!
It will be a competition centered around TJBot (https://ibmtjbot.github.io), an open-source project designed to explore Watson Services in a fun way!
It is open to all IBM employees based in Austin. Participants should form a team of 2-5 people. Each team will be provided with a TJBot kit and will have about two weeks to come up with their own creation with their TJBot, which they will demonstrate to a panel of judges. Teams are welcome to augment and accessorize their creation as they please!
All teams picking up a TJBot kit must turn in a creation!
No other rules!
Registration Opens (register early, finite number of kits)
Pick up the kits and information on access, slack channel etc
TJBots on display at the Creators Meet and Prizes!
Judges review the TJBot creations, starts 1pm
Best of Watson - judged on how well the TJBot leverages Watson services

Best New Talent - judges' choice among entries from teams with 50% or more of early tenure IBMers (<=5 years with IBM).

Participants are encouraged to publish their creations on github and share them as recipes on the TJBot project page.
