CIC / Berkshire Hathaway Shoe Holdings Inc - Futuristic Design / Development Hackathon

Hi folks

Berkshire Hathaway Shoe Holdings in conjunction with CIC (Cambridge Innovation Center) is hosting its inaugural hackathon at CIC Boston next weekend -  July 27/28. Attendance is limited, please reserve your seat before the event is completely sold out!

The hackathon is free of charge and invites designers, developers and product owners to explore the next generation of navigation in websites and native applications. Multiple prizes announced for the hackathon. Below is a short summary of the hackathon:

Internet navigation refers to the process of navigating a network of information resources in the World Wide Web which if organized as hypermedia or hyperlinks. Central to internet navigation is the development of a navigation interface that maximizes usability and ease of finding information in a plethora of hypermedia and hyperlinks.

A website navigation is analogous to a road map, which enables webpage visitors to explore and discover different areas and information contained within the website. Sometimes navigation design makes it cumbersome to find specific information depending on the device from which search occurs. With the advent of mobile devices in the last decade, information discovery needs to be addressed and looked at closely to ensure that visitors can still discover information with ease.

Instead of a hierarchical navigation that forces visitors to follow a map-route on websites, a circular navigation can be immensely useful and more personalized for the visitor to use a nob for cycling through products and turning on/off product features to ensure information can be retrieved faster and easier and more importantly resembling interfaces which they have used before as in the circular navigation in their vehicles.

Berkshire Hathaway Shoe Holdings presents this Circular Navigation Hackathon in collaboration with CIC Boston.
