Hackathon Open Data Brussels

October 17th and 18th 2014

Global Enterprise and transforma bxl will be hosting the first Brussels Open Data Hackathon. The City of Brussels supports the event. During two days, developers, graphic designers and regular citizens will gather to propose online services or apps ideas that will be developed and made real through an operable prototype. At the end of the second day, contestants will demo their app or service in front of a jury expert.

The Brussels Open Data Hackathon participants will have the opportunity to tap into the wide public data pool already made available by the Brussels public institutions and, more specifically, the City of Brussels.
