This hackathon will be a little different. We’re creating an API to interact with the data, so hackers can spend their time creating ways to view, manipulate and interact with London’s city budget.
Programmers will get into groups to design, develop and launch fun and informative ways to view the data. Use the language you are most comfortable with.
Designers and math enthusiasts can develop infographics for the data – programming is not a requirement.
Those who wish to help out can input data into the database, make sure everyone takes lots of breaks, and take lots of pictures.
- To end the day with multiple launched applications
- To make the city’s budget more accessible to Londoners
- To have fun and grow the open data community in London
