Earlier this year, together with the Innovation World Cup Series®, we created the Connected Living Challenge powered by Geeny to search for great new solutions and projects that improve lifestyle, health, fitness and everything else that might make consumers' lives more connected and digital.
"We're going to Ohio!!" My colleague Joelle said as she looked up from her computer screen and smiled at me. "We are going to Ohio!"
"OK, cool," I said. "What are we going to do in Ohio?"

Last Wednesday we finally had an opportunity to run our very first internal hackathon that helped us learn more about the platform and how we work together. Not only we ended up with 4 amazing demos but we got to work with people from other teams and we had a lot of fun!
Let’s imagine that you are working on a new, revolutionary product that leverages cheap semiconductors that are connected to the internet (IoT).
With the recent launch of Geeny’s Formula Deployment feature, developers can now push their applications to our platform and use our APIs to consume data streams from a variety of connected devices — even if they don’t know about each other.
Shared pain brings people together. It comes as no surprise that I felt quite sympathetic reading "IoT is easy... they said". At least we aren't alone! In the article, the founder from Fitmatic.com talks about trying integrate data from wearables and failing because his team assumed that sensor data is like any other data they had handled before. What my development experience at Geeny taught me is that building an IoT platform is nothing like my other “scalable CRUD-as-a-product” experiences.
