Simpleweb Hack Night

The Simpleweb hack-night is back! And this time we have a THEME: Geolocation!

The idea is to build something cool using location services. It could be a web app, iOS app or something else.

We'll also be making the new API for Rusic available which is a great way to store location based entries.

If you think of something to build that's great, but don't worry if you can't - just come along and find others to collaborate with. All the Simpleweb lot will be here to partner up with people, form a few teams and build some cool stuff!

All you need to bring with you is:

* Laptop
* Smartphones, tablets, devices with (A)GPS

We'll be providing:

* WiFi
* Drinks: Beers, soft drinks, coffee etc...
* Pizzas

Spread the word, we look forward to seeing you there!

      I have some half baked ideas along the lines of "Where can I find pool/snooker?" web/native apps.

      The idea being centred around user generated content, since the data is practically non-existent, and various gamification efforts to encourage submission, e.g. ranks based on submission, data tied in with Foursquare / Facebook check-ins, rewards for confirmed venues, providing associated data like whether the pub serves good ale etc.

      ??? -> Profit.
