DycodeX Wins Rice Bowl Awards 2018 as Best Ecosystem Initiative in Indonesia

By | Events, News | No Comments

Startup growth in the world is increasing, and each other is competing to make their company the best. Every region in the world has the prominent startups, as well as in the Asian region. That’s why the New Entrepreneurs Foundation (myNEF) – a non-profit organization that focuses on creating and developing sustainable entrepreneurs – celebrates the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship in the Southeast Asian startup ecosystem by holding the ASEAN Rice Bowl Startup Awards.

What is The Rice Bowl Awards?

The Rice Bowl Startup Awards are the official Southeast Asia circuit for the Global Startup Awards. The Awards are divided into several rounds – nationals, regional and global. This year, the regional (South East Asia) reward innovation, excellence, and best practice in startups across the region. From all over Asia, there were 2500 startups listed in Rice Bowl. From Indonesia only, there were 280 submissions – including DycodeX. One interesting point from this year’s ARBSA was from 9 countries that entered the nomination, there were 6 female founders who became the winners.

Miss Lyliana, CEO of myNEF explained during the ARBSA 2018 Indonesia Awarding Night in Jakarta on October 5, 2018, that Rice Bowl is not a pitching company because according to her, what often becomes the winner in the speech competition usually sounds good, but not as good. So it would not be fair for the Asian companies that have good qualities but are limited to language and presentation constraints.

The Indonesian Winners

As one of the finalists of ARBSA 2018, DycodeX actively participated in promoting the event. If you follow our social media you would notice that at the end of September to early October, we shares a voting link so that the public can participate in choosing the best startup according to them in several categories. But voting is not everything. It’s just a way to move up the ladder. In fact, voting only affects about 10-15% of the total assessment. The criteria for the finalists of ARBSA are startups that stand less than 5 years, and the judges will make the assessments.

DycodeX made it into 4 nomination categories, namely Best Food / Agri Tech, Best IoT, Startup Of The Year, and Best Ecosystem Initiative. And we won the Best Startup Ecosystem Initiative Award 2018 in Indonesia. While the other Indonesia winners were:

  • Startup Of The Year: Smart Shop
  • Founder of the Year: Aditya Minarto

About PyCon Indonesia 2017 (#PyConID2017)

PyCon Indonesia is a conference where Python users, or people interested in Python, gather to learn from each other and meet other members of the community. By joining this conference, all attendees will not only learn new and exciting things. But also meet new friends and strengthen the connection with the community, and thus the community itself.

#PyConID2017 aired with “A New Beginning” as a main theme this year. Well-known as the first Python Conference (PyCon) in Indonesia, #PyConID2017 had been held in Semarang last week (9/12).

New Insight from an Awesome Speakers

 

#PyConID2017 was proudly invite 20 speakers included 2 keynote speakers. DycodeX as a Gold Sponsor in this event also had 1 session represented by Alwin Arrasyid, an IoT Software Engineer.

Internet of Things ranges from measuring things in the physical world to building devices, software, apps, and data analysis, hence it brings people with various expertise together. It is rare to see developer who can build software for the devices, back-end, and do analysis alone due to difference in technology that is used. That is why device software or firmware developers often use third-party IoT cloud service such as Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix and ThingSpeak to build their prototype. This talk addresses the possibility of building full stack IoT products using only Python as the main technology.

In refer to the thoughts above, Alwin’s entitle his topic with “IoT Software Engineer Journey: Connecting the Unconnected with Python”. Alwin’s presentation deck is available here.

Jepret Allegra on #PyConID2017

Should you came to an event, take a photos or even a selfies is a must to tie up with the moment. DycodeX as a Gold Sponsor of #PyConID2017 presented Jepret Allegra, an automatic cloud-printing photos based on hashtag.

Bandung, Jawa Barat – Setelah resmi diluncurkan pada tanggal 24 September 2016, Makestro memulai langkah pertamanya dengan mantap untuk mendukung acara Bandung Makerthon 2016 di Gd. CC Timur ITB pada hari Sabtu (1/10) lalu.

Bandung Makerthon 2017 merupakan rangkaian kegiatan Makerthon yang bekerjasama secara resmi di SEAMNET (South East Asia Makerspace Network). Dalam acara ini, sebanyak 44 orang peserta yang terbagi menjadi 12 kelompok ditantang untuk membuat inovasi-inovasi terkait masalah penanggulangan sampah di kota Bandung. Tema yang diusung tahun ini adalah Designing A World With Zero Waste, dimana konsepnya yakni membuat produk yang mengandung unsur-unsur bebas polusi, dapat didaur ulang, serta memiliki tingkat keberlangsungan yang tinggi. Konsep dalam perlombaan Bandung Makerthon 2016 ini adalah produk yang memiliki skema serta nilai bisnis yang jelas agar dapat dikembangkan dan punya potensi berkelanjutan.

Suasana talkshow di acara Bandung Makerthon.

Tema ini dipilih atas dasar persoalan-persoalan tentang sampah yang kerap menjadi PR kota Bandung itu sendiri. Kebiasaan masyarakat yang kurang peka terhadap masalah sampah sehingga membuang sampah sembarangan hingga minimnya edukasi kepada masyarakat terkait penanggulangan sampah itu sendiri. Bandung Makerthon ingin bergerak untuk membangkitkan semangat para inovator-inovator muda untuk berinovasi. Dengan bekerjasama dengan DycodeX, Makestro yang dibuat sebagai wadah pendukung makers di Indonesia, khususnya Bandung, turut memfasilitasi peserta untuk mengembangkan dirinya dan berinovasi dengan Internet of Things (IoT). Sebanyak 1 buah Arduino dan 5 buah Raspberry Pi disiapkan DycodeX untuk mendukung para peserta.

Pemenang dari Bandung Makerthon yang mewakili Indonesia untuk dikirim ke Singapur mulus melenggang dengan tong sampah pintar yang diberi nama “Goods Do Goods”. Konsepnya yakni dengan memberi poin pada setiap orang yang membuang sampah, dimana poin ini kelak secara otomatis akan dikirimkan ke pihak-pihak terkait agar tidak terjadi penumpukan berkelanjutan.

Tim Goods Do Goods juara Bandung Makerthon.

Andri Yadi, sebagai juri dalam Bandung Makerton ini memastikan bahwa dummy yang dibuat kelompok Goods Do Goods ini cukup inovatif dan berpotensi dikembangkan dalam jumlah yang besar. “Ide dan gerakan seperti ini yang Makestro dan Bandung Makerthon harapkan, inovator muda yang bergerak lincah dan turut serta membangun kotanya sendiri,” tutur Andri Yadi. “Kita juga dapat membuktikan bahwa IoT tidak hanya dapat digunakan untuk sekedar mempermudah kehidupan personal, namun juga dapat menjadi sarana untuk mengontrol dan mengembangkan daerah kita sendiri.”

Terus berkarya dan harumkan nama baik bangsa di kancah internasional ya, Goods Do Goods!
