We are inviting hackers, male or female, to join FTL and Social Sweethearts on the 2nd and 3rd of March for a frenzied 24 hours of designing, coding and making.
Exciting prizes are waiting for all participants!

You'll have the opportunity to bring together all sorts of data and information using any and all tools the web has to offer in our “Social Infotainment Hackathon”. With the goal of creating a memorable user experience in the context of infotainment, this hackathon aims to bring together 30 creative minds to build exciting visualizations and apps, using your favourite APIs.
Infotainment provides stories to the people with personalisation and emotionalism. It tries to search for thrilling, special and surprising essence of an event and makes an entertaining, exciting story out of it.

If you are interested in web development, data science and/or APIs, apply today to be a participant!
