The GeoConnections Program at Natural Resources Canada would like to bring to your attention the second annual Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE) hackathon which will take place from February 20-22, 2015. We encourage the Canadian geomatics community, in particular those involved in the development of geospatial applications, to consider taking up this challenge!
CODE is an intense 48-hour hackathon, inviting developers, graphic designers, students, and anyone interested at trying their hand at coding to use Government of Canada Open Data found on the Open Data Portal. You are encouraged to mash-up federal datasets, as well as include provincial, territorial, and municipal data when building your apps.
To encourage the meaningful and productive use of federal datasets, CODE aims to inspire innovation in three categories: Youth, Commerce and Quality of Life. All eligible submissions must conform to a category specific theme, which will be announced minutes before the hackathon begins.
Participation is FREE. Winners will share $40,000 in prizes. Sign-up Now.
