Hack for Sweden 2016 is an exciting 24 hour hackathon that is just under way! The hackathon has 20+ teams and 70+ participants and they compete in creating the most innovative solution using public data and APIs from 23 participating government agencies and organizations. The competition has five awards:
- Hack for Sweden Award (the best and most creative app/service that clearly shows the benefit of open data)
- Best use for citizens
- Best commercialization potential
- Best visualization
- Participants Award (voted by all participants)
I am thrilled to be on the jury this year and it’s inspiring to walk around and meet the teams that frantically are getting their ideas implemented.
Below are some photos from the last hour before submission:
