ycitesee Hackathon & Design Jam
August 10, 2013 @ 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM| FREE
The goal of ycitesee Hackathon and Design Jam Day is to explore and build the next generation of travel applications. It’s a full day of hacking in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their hacks at the close of the day.
Well… we’will ensure you are comfortable, enjoy good food and leave with a swag bag. We are supporting Kumasi Children’s Home & Orphanage, Ghana. More about that on the day. Please feel free to make a donation on the day.
We will be using the Pearson Eye Witness Guides travel API with access to points of interest, travel and activity data for 9 popular city destinations. Be inspired by the data to create awesome travel products! Anything goes as long as it’s travel related.
If you need some inspiration, then check out the suggested travel hack themes, hack tips and schedule: ycitesee suggested Travel Hack Themes

What are the rules? All code must be new! Prior to the hackathon you can create your design, wireframes, logo, and user flows. Either enter as a team or as an individual.
You can can access the Pearson Eye Witness Guides API, from 5th – 9th August to prepare. For access to the Pearson API key please email us. But to make things completely fair you cannot write any code whatsoever until the hackathon starts. All code must be built at the ycitesee Hackathon & Design Jam. All code created on the day is the IP of the team or the individual.
