HackTheCity is an event for you to change your city using tech.

You don't need to have any tech expertise (although this is helpful), you just need a problem or idea or an interest in making our city a better place, through the means of innovative tech!

We thought what better way to celebrate the festive build-up than a recap on 2018's most successful projects, accompanied by mulled wine and mince pies!

Enjoy a festive warming mug of Glühwein and hear from the awesome Chris Cundill on "The City Platform" - An open API for developers to innovate using city data to benefit residents.

We'll also hear from Sharon Mitchell who joined the LoRaWAN focussed meet-up back in Summer. Ever since, Sharon has been working on a prototype LoRaWAN/TTN IoT device for asset tracking.

“Jiggle : The Things Network IoT device for asset location tracking”

Jiggle is a battery-operated, completely portable, LoRa-radio-enabled micro-controller based IoT device fitted with a vibration sensor and GPS module. The idea behind the project came about as a bicycle tracking device to aid bicycle recovery in the event of theft.

The project integrates with the free and open-source implementation of LoRaWAN known as The Things Network, and provides mapping function to the end user in a web browser by utilising the Google Cloud Platform APIs: Maps Javascript API and GeoLocation API.

Looking forward to seeing you all for the finale #HackTheCity of the year!
