Bristol Open Data Challenge event – Book your place today!

01 Mar, 17 by Katherine Rooney

Calling App Developers and Innovators! #makebristolmobile

Join us for a one-day hackathon with a cash prize of £100! Tickets are free but limited so please book via Eventbrite.

The event’s main focus is to build an app using data from The Bristol API, through our iOS or Android Software Development Kits that might:

  • Help the city become less congested
  • Maximise the capacity of vehicles on the road
  • Encourage more people to choose public transport

Feel free to come along to the event with an idea and a ready-made team, or come along on your own and work with others who are interested in solving challenges with city data. Please do take into account that it’s mainly focused for those who have some skills with tech/app development.

This is the 4th in a series of Open Data Challenge events focussed on raising the profile and impact of the wealth of transport data that the city is publishing through The Bristol API. For this event we are thrilled to be hosted by OVO Energy in their fantastic Bristol HQ just next door to Bristol Temple Meads station.

Free food and drink, plus plenty of support and encouragement will be provided on the day. For more info and to book, go to Eventbrite.
