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