Hack the Hackathon London

Details and sign-up at http://www.hackthehackathon.com/event/hth-london-05jul2013/

Our Hackathon presents an opportunity to experiment with development platforms, APIs, and “smart” devices and to address an array of possible projects falling loosely into three broad challenge categories: Social Good, Sustainable Business, and Smarter Living. Within these three broad categories, you are free to invent and build prototypes that address the issues you feel are needed and wanted in your locale, and beyond.

Everyone attending gets $100 of AWS credit to use on their hacks and afterwards.

    I'm not sure i understand. Can we stay in HUB on Friday after 10 (when doors are closed) or will we have to leave and comeback on Saturday morning?

      The HtH team wrote in an email this morning:

      ‘FRIDAY NIGHT: Please be advised that HUB Westminster will not be open between the hours of 22:00 Friday and 08:00 Saturday. It will not be possible to stay at the Hackathon overnight on Friday night. If this causes hardship for anyone, we are very sorry.’

    Ok once we solved the inconsistency about the location, we can fix the inconsistencies about scope.

    On Meetup.com the prize categories are business, road, field and aid.

    On Eventbrite the above four are just "additional prize categories" and the objective of the hackathon is instead to develop sustainable business, smarter living and social good.

    The description of the "sustainable business" category has also little to do with sustainability, but rather appears to describe a scenario of gamification at work http://giacec.co/QmAPUg­ . Sustainable business refers instead to "(...) resiliency over time – businesses that can survive shocks because they are intimately connected to healthy economic, social and environmental systems. These businesses create economic value and contribute to healthy ecosystems and strong communities." http://giacec.co/1a2d6nP­

    Sorry to be boring, but the best way to create something great is to know what problem you're addressing in the first place!
