28th ~ 29th July, 2012 in Central London
Thank you all for coming. Please check the result page for all the cool hacks.
This summer, the world's eyes are all on London’s summer of sports.
We expect an increasing volume of social media that generates huge amount of data. Tons of visitors as well as Londoners will be overwhelmed by variety of information. This is a great opportunity for technologists to analyse and visualise such information, as well as create new devices and apps to amplify, manage and make sense of the data in interesting ways.
We are organising a “Hackathon” (“Hack” + “Marathon”) where graphic designers , programmers, journalists, sports enthusiasts, and anyone with cool ideas and data gather in one place during a weekend to create something cool, fun and useful around the theme of London and Sports. At the end of the event, each team or individual pitches their outcome in front of all the participants.
28th(Sat) ~ 29th(Sun) July
11-13 Bayley Street Bedford Square WC1B 3HD London United Kingdom
Please refer to the Guardian article. We are trying to be playful while honoring the contract. Pacta sunt servanda!! ;-)
You can use anything you want to. We are currently compiling a relevant data set. Let us know if you know anything else.
We are not planning to host for other cities, but you are free to organise your own!! Would be nice if we can collaborate across cities. Feel free to fork our website if you need your own.
Building great stuff and showing off to the rest of the world takes up lots of effort. Let us know if you can partner with us to provide the followings.
Please contact makoto @ new-bamboo.co.uk for more information.
Before the Hackathon starts, our supporters guide you through various api, dataset, and libraries, which will be helpful for you to make amazing hacks.
