Hacking for a better place
If so, register here for env[:hack], a Hack Day being organised by the Environment Agency with help from Geeks of London and GeoVation. The event will be held on 16-17 March 2013 at the University of Bristol and aims to bring together around 80 software and hardware developers, Environment Agency experts and interesting data.
A Hack Day is a free-to-attend, intense weekend of learning, sharing and building new cool software and hardware projects. In the case of env[:hack] the theme is the environment and environmental responsibility. Hacking for a better place. You are welcome to register as a hacker or as an observer. Whether you are an expert or novice, developer or designer, join us to explore the APIs provided by the Environment Agency.
The event will open Saturday 10:30am-10pm and Sunday 9am-5pm. See schedule. We will have a solution for the overnight for any hackers coming from outside of Bristol. Register your requirement and details will follow.
