People! It's time for our first hack as a fully formed and funded CiC (http://www.bathhacked.org/organisation/what-is-a-community-interest-company-and-why-have-we-become-one/). Summers of Data is a super relaxed 1-day hack on 4th July to celebrate our new Independence. (You saw what we did there.)
We have lots of local data in a beautiful data store (https://data.bathhacked.org/), free food/drink, cash prizes and a warm welcome for all.
• Artists & creative
• Data analysts
• Public sector staff
• Charity & community workers
Themes & Prizes
It's relaxed. The only rule this time around is that your project contains some local open data: Mash it with other data, visualise it, make an app or tell a data story with art - it's all up to you. Teams can win one (or more) of the following categories:
Best Story (£100)
Tell us something about where we live; a story that educates, inspires or just plain titillates, based on local data.
Best Community Solution (£100)
Awarded to the team that solves a local problem for our residents using open data.
People's Choice (£100)
Which team did you most admire? Awarded by popular vote of hack participants.
Best Overall Project (£200)
Awarded to the team judged to have made the best of the hack across any/all categories.
We'll be providing free lunch to all participants. There's also a plentiful supply of free tea and coffee and a small tipple will probably appear too.
Can't wait to see you what you make!
