Databox HackDay at MozFest 2017 (Thu. 26 Oct)

As part of Mozilla Festival 2017, we are inviting you to join us in Databox Hackathon event as a joint summit hosted under the Mozilla Festival pre-week events and a BBC R&D community event.

Please register here:

We will present the public release of a working open source Databox platform, which can be run on any device capable of running Docker containers. We endeavour to provide support for ARM devices such as the Raspberry Pi 3 for this release. This initial release has basic data collection support through mobile sensing libraries and selected APIs, provides basic data flow policing and privacy policy enforcement, and supports installation and operation of simple personal data processing apps. At this event we will briefly introduce and demo the Databox to you, then we hope to engage with security & privacy enthusiasts, data visualisation & analytics fans, and potential app developers to begin building a community and ecosystem around the Databox. We’re open to contributions of all kinds, from improvements to core components, to helping you integrate your favourite IoT devices, to brainstorming what apps and devices you want to see the Databox support!

The full schedule is available on the Eventbrite page.
