Hackathon: #opendata makes you move

Artikkelikuva: Hackathon: #opendata makes you move

The Six cities organize a spare time hackathon.

What moves you? And how could you turn it into business?

A hackathon is not a mystery – it is a free collective event, where anyone can:
– Learn about open data and the business opportunities it enables
– Network
– Envision what spare time means in the future
– Enjoy good food and relaxed atmosphere

The aim of the event is to develop new open data based spare time business concepts and prototypes, which will be pitched to all participants at the end of the day. Brainstorming ideas will take place in four cities simultaneously.
