  • The UI can be any mix of SAP BOBJ Design Studio, Java, Fiori, Lumira or other commercial libraries for AR & IoT.
  • Participants can create their own teams of upto 3 persons/team
  • Team members can work within or outside office hours (if not busy with customer activities)
  • You can discuss tips and tricks with other teams but will be judged on the uniqueness of your own team’s project
