Welcome to the 2019 Fire Hack!

Thank you for registering on Devpost!

This is an in-person event to be held at the ‘The Spark’ at Southampton Solent University Conference Centre. We’re limited on numbers so to secure your place at this unique event, please make sure you register on Eventbrite for your free ticket.

It’s time to get a grip with AMASE, the drone simulation environment that you’ll be using for the hackathon.  

  • To download the AMASE software you’ll need to sign the AMASE licence agreement. (Just don’t distribute the software to third parties. SmallPDF is a convenient way to sign PDFs online)
  • Email the completed agreement to 2019-fire-hack@dstl.gov.uk
  • We’ll email you instructions on how and where to download AMASE. We’ll try to back to you as soon as possible. If we haven’t responded within a few days please contact us on our slack channel

Once you’re up to speed with AMASE, try your hand at ‘Challenge Zero’. Challenge zero is non-compulsory challenge for you to familiarise yourself with AMASE and the type of tasks you’ll be expected to complete. You’ll also get to test out the submission process. 

If you have any questions check the FAQs, email 2019-fire-hack@dstl.gov.uk or contact us via our slack channel
