The event is open and free and requires some technology knowledge: HTML, Javascript and CSS, HTTP REST API, C# (.NET). Familiarity with Microsoft PowerBI streaming datasets and dashboards is a plus. “This event will provide many opportunities for participants, both personally and professionally, as they co-create solutions for their future,” said Renata Galle, vice president of innovation and digital business at Stefanini.

The Challenge:

This is a programming challenge, with the goal of creating a web application that allows the control of a Tello drone’s flight using voice commands.
