BrnoHacks, the biggest open data hackathon in the city, will bring together active citizens, people from non-profit organisations, the business sector and the government. Our goal together is to make Brno a friendlier place to live and to show how to use raw open data to create meaningful projects.
Over the course of a weekend, participants will organize into small teams, familiarize themselves with the technological requirements, and show their skills by writing software, designing mock-ups for a project or application of their own, and by implementing it while using available open data.
a developer who wants to write software and master emerging technologies?
a graphic designer willing to create user-friendly app designs that can transform boring stats into visualizations explaining life in Brno?
an idea maker who can build innovative projects to change the way people feel and live their city?
a data scientist who knows how to find new ways to use open data?
an urbanist who wants to share their expertise, and solve real issues?
someone who can help generate new insights and design projects, so #brnohacks can make a real difference to the city and its residents?
Registration is open till May 10. Due to the limited capacity of the venue, your registration will be confirmed after the registration ends on May 12. Please write your area of expertise and skills you can bring to the hackathon into the registration form so we can inform you if you have been chosen to participate!
The City of Brno promised to publish its open data before the hackathon starts. We will update you when it happens. However, there are other open data resources that you can use - eg. the National Cadastre of Real Estate, Register of Contracts, diverse meteorological data, list of Cultural Monuments in Brno, list of Data Boxes, E-Desky, Register of Economic Subjects.
We also encourage you to come up with data resources by your own. In any case, we want you to make use of some open data sets at least.
