For beginners and experienced coders alike, we'll look at all the information that is available for free to make new web services, from bus schedules to city gardens. We'll start with a small introduction and spend the rest of the evening building a small web project and talk about the future of social cities.
A social hackathon for anyone interested in social innovation and sustainable cities. Participants of all levels are welcome to join as individuals or groups. After our brief introduction to what open data is, why it exists, and the open data available in Sweden we’ll enjoy some refreshments. For the rest of the evening participants will branch into two groups:
For beginners a hosted workshop with an instructor will be provided. We’ll walk through creating a simple application using some of the open data available in the Skåne region.
For experienced developers space and refreshments will be provided for open ended hacking. We encourage you to check out https://oppnadata.se/ to see what sort of open data is available for you to work with! In traditional hackathon style, we’ll run until the last ones are tired or morning comes!
