We are young. We are free. We are makers united.

We are the brave new world.

There is something extraordinary happening in the world. Over the last 20 years, the internet and smart phones accelerated innovation exponentially and changed the world as we know it. Now the third wave, the makers revolution has begun. Open hardware and easy access to tools are going to improve cities, homes, and our approach to health and food production. Most of these advances will emerge from companies that don't exist today--from teams of young entrepreneurs known as startups.

The Event

The CityOS internship program unites developers, engineers, makers, hackers, designers, and beyond. The world's foremost innovators will join the local community to build successful local startups that use technology to solve real city problems.

This 3-day event kicks off in Mostar with a conference followed by Zero-to-Hero workshops and closes with a hackathon focused around smart cities, IoT, drones, ponics, and robotics. By the end, participants will have built their first functional apps and devices.

Brave New World Conference 2016

Conference OCT.21

The CityOS conference brings the most knowledgable speakers together to share their expertise and discuss the latest technologies, best practices, and success stories of smart cities, IoT, drones, robotics and ponics implementations around the world. Speakers are mostly practitioners, young people, startup founders, and experts in the modern world of smart city IoT.

Keynote: Ceco Gakovic

We are excited to welcome Ceco Gakovic as the keynote speaker at this year's conference.

Ceco's inspiration, vision, and ingenuity is exactly the kind of spirit this conference is all about. His words will truly be an inspiration to young aspiring makers, engineers, and developers.

Zero to Hero

Tech Workshops OCT.21

The workshops are conducted as intensive, 'Zero to Hero' bootcamps - where in 1 day attendees can learn everything from the basics all the way to building a fully functional smart city application. Workshops will feature the latest and coolest future tech from autonomous drones and hydroponics, to robotics and building your own IoT devices.

Learn to program a drone in NodeJS. Suited for both beginners and advanced NodeJS hackers, you'll learn basic JavaScript programming and building NodeJS Web Services all the way to controlling and streaming media from a Parrot 2.0 drone.
Drone Automation in NodeJS
Nothing is more fun than flying a drone, but it's important to learn the basics first before diving in. Learn everything to you need to fly a drone safely and effectively. First you'll practice on a simulator then take turns flying a Phantom drone!
Intro to drone flying
Learn how to grow food in an automated hydroponic environment without classic gardening. We'll cover all stages of development from micro-controller programming and seed selection to successful plant breeding and harvesting.
IoT Hydroponics
Great products balance aesthetics with form, function, usability, ergonomics, engineering, and marketability. After you learn the basics of product design, you'll design a basic air quality device using 3D modeling software.
3D Device Design
This workshop will introduce you to the exciting world of 3D printing. You'll learn about the various devices available, how to create and prepare your 3D model for printing, and finally, how to use the 3D printer successfully.
Intro to 3D printing
Take the user experience beyond the screen by learning how to design apps for IoT devices. Created just for developers, you'll learn the complete UX design process from personas to flow maps and wireframes, then design a simple IoT app from scratch.
App Design For IoT
Learn to build your first iOS app for an IoT device. First, you'll learn the basics of Swift and iOS 10, then get introduced to the CityOS Swift framework which you will use to quickly develop an app for a real IoT device. All levels welcome.
iOS Apps Development
With the global population of bees under threat, we built technology to help ensure their survival. The IoBees (Internet of Bees) open hardware project automates beekeeping, allowing scalability to hundreds of hives. Learn how in our workshop.
IoBees Automated Bee Colony
This workshop is a great way to get started with coding and electronics. Learn to build, connect, and control electronic devices.
Build Your Own IoT Device
Learn how to use ESP8266, the most widely used wireless module for IoT. This module is great for creating projects that are controlled remotely with mobile apps. Learn how to program and implement this module in your existing projects.

Mostar Hackathon 2016

Hackathon OCT.22-23

On the weekend, there will be a hackathon, where developers, engineers, makers, architects, UI/UX designers and others apply everything they learned and join forces to build the best smart city solutions for their challenges using IoT and robotics technology. The hackathon results in multiple functional usable apps and devices. Team projects are presented on Sunday and the winners will receive startup shared space, maker labs, coaches, equipment, and other things needed for their success. During the hackathon, we provide mentors, a hardware lab, as well as food, drinks and everything else needed by participants.

3-Month Internship Program NOV.25-JAN.25

The hackathon winners will enter our 3-month internship program, where they will receive all the resources and mentoring necessary to turn their prototypes into real functional products.
