Hackathons

Hackathons are something I’ve been an onlooker of for a number of years, but not something I ever thought I would be a part of. Historically because they were typically run over a few days are were more developer focussed.

However more recently I’ve been noticing more online hackathons that are run over 2-3 months and that are in areas I have enough skills to put a submission together. Quintessentially putting the Hack into Hackathon. In 2018 I entered my first and have just completed my second. This page lists my submissions for Hackathons (most recent first).

Microsoft Graph Security Hackathon February 2019

For this Hackathon I built my first WebApp that interfaces with Microsoft Graph to provide a single pane view of a Users Profile with respect to security configuration. The screenshot below shows the summary of a users profile.

The Architecture of the solution is shown below.

Azure IoT on Serverless Hackathon August 2018

For this Hackathon I built an IoT solution using a Seeed Studio  ReSpeaker Core v1 with a ReSpeaker Mic Array that integrate with Azure IoT and Azure Cognitive Services that allows you to use Voice Command to query Microsoft Identity Manager.

The Architecture for my Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager is shown below.
