We spent the weekend up in the San Francisco bay area as Enervee was one of the technical partners for the UC Berkeley Cleanweb Hackathon. There were around 30 participants with a mix of students and working professionals bringing a wide range of skills sets.
The had three tracks to pick a challenge from: Smart Homes, Green Button data, and Green Transport. We were truly impressed by how much each of the five participating groups was able to accomplish in only 24 hours. The two most exciting concepts were Thermostatly, an app that integrated with Twitter to adjust your thermostat and share savings with your friends, and Friends on the Go, a web site that incentives you to take public transportation by connecting you with fellow riders for a fun chat, business networking, or even dating.
